Benefits of forming a corporation or Limited Liability Company (LLC) include:

  • Personal asset protection. Incorporating allows the business owner(s) to separate and protect their personal assets in case of a lawsuit or claims against a business entity. In an properly managed and structured company, owners have limited liability for outstanding business debts and obligations. This is one of the primary benefits to incorporating. The process needed to form either a corporation or an LLC is similar to a partnership, without the need for excessive paperwork and fees.
  • Tax flexibility & Benefits. There are multiple tax advantages and benefits of incorporating a small business. Typically profit and losses are “passed-through” an LLC and get reported on the personal income tax returns of the owner. However, an LLC can also elect to be taxed as a corporation. Additionally, a corporation can avoid double taxation of corporate profits and dividends by electing Subchapter S tax status. We can do this for you.
  • Improved credibility. One major benefit of incorporating your business is the enhanced credibility of having an “Inc.” or “LLC” after your business name. This distinction gives your business with the instant credibility and authority associated with owning an incorporated company. Potential consumers, partners and vendors may be more inclined to do business with an incorporated company over one who is not.
  • Protection of your brand In most states, other businesses may not file your exact corporate or LLC name in the same state. From a branding standpoint, this not only helps protect your company’s reputation from being diminished by or confused with another company bearing a similar sounding name, but strengthens your businesses in terms of brand identity and marketing efforts.
  • Perpetual existence. Limited Liability Companies and Corporations continue to exist through any ownership or management changes your business may go through. In contrast, sole proprietorships and partnerships simply end when an owner dies or leaves. By incorporating ensures you are making sure that your business will continue to provide its services and employment should any changes in ownership take place, as well as preserving the legacy of your business
  • Deductible expenses. Normal business expenses, including salaries, all are deductible before income is allocated to owners. This is often a huge tax benefit and is therefore another common reason for incorporation.

The decision to incorporate is an important step in the life of a business. Carefully consider your options, weigh the advantages and disadvantages of incorporating a small business, and further explore some of the added benefits of incorporation.
