What does it mean to be incorporated?

When people say “I’d like to register my business,” they usually mean incorporating their business as a C Corporation or an S Corporation or forming an LLC. By incorporating or forming an LLC, the company’s owner or owners create a separate legal entity to transact business. The process involves properly completing and filing your documents and appointing a registered agent. If you incorporate, most states require that you hold an organizational meeting, issue shares and adopt bylaws. To be an S Corporation, you’ll also have to file an election statement with the IRS. LLCs have fewer state requirements, but it’s a best practice to adopt an operating agreement.

Why is incorporating a business important?

When you incorporate, the business becomes a separate legal entity, distinct from its owners. This new entity ─ whether it’s a C Corp, S Corp or LLC ─ often has enhanced credibility with lenders, potential customers, vendors and employees. Limited liability is another key benefit. Without incorporation, you are responsible for any debts and losses your business may accumulate. However, when you incorporate, you are typically held responsible only for the amount of money you personally invest or business debts you personally guarantee. Your personal assets typically cannot be used to satisfy the debts and liabilities of your business

We form all types of corporations

Oldest & most popular corporate form of business.  A C corporation is owned by shareholders, who must elect a board of directors that make business decisions and oversee policies. In most cases, a C corporation is required to report its financial operations to the state attorney general. Because a corporation is treated as an independent entity, a C corporation does not cease to exist when its owners or shareholders change or die.

Advantages:

  • Limited Liability
  • Stocks make easy to transfer ownership

Disadvantages:

  • Double taxation: once at corporate level & again at personal

The S-Corp almost identical is structure to the C-Corp, but solve the double taxation problem. Excellent for new small businesses that will make a loss or small profit in the first few years

Advantages:

  • Taxed Once—at personal level
  • Ability to deduct business losses from personal income
  • Limited Liability
  • Stocks make easy to transfer ownership

Disadvantages:

  • Owners limited to US citizens or residents
  • Owners limited to 100 shareholders

Structure of LLC is similar to partnership’s. It’s the States solution to the double taxation problem. Excellent for owners that want limited liability and single taxation, but do not qualify for S-Corp status

Advantages:

  • Flexibility in taxing—at personal or corporate level
  • Ability to deduct business losses from personal income
  • Limited Liability
  • Flexibility in ownership-

Disadvantages:

  • No-stocks make more difficult to transfer ownership

A non profit organization is very different from other types of businesses. This type of corporation usually means that the organization will reinvest all of it’s profit made through goods, services, donations or sponsorship back into the business in order to achieve a long term mission.

These missions are usually related to social causes such as humanitarian aid, education or research.

Advantages

Tax deductions/ exemptions: Organizations that qualify as public charity do not have to pay corporate income tax as well as similar state or local fees.

Eligible For Grants: Most government bodies and foundations give most of their grants to non-profits.

Limited liability: Under the law, creditors and courts are limited to the assets of the nonprofit organization. The founders, directors, members, and employees are not personally liable for the nonprofit’s debts.

 

Disadvantages

Cost of startup: Starting a non profit often takes plenty of resources and money. The tax exemption also needs to be applied for which attracts additional fees. You may also need an attorney, accountant or some form of consultant.

Records: These need to be well organized and detailed to be submitted annually to the state and IRS.

Shared Control: There are laws an regulations that prevent any single individual or entity to have full control of most of the businesses organizations or policies.

Public has access to filings:  Non -profits usually serve the public and so plenty of information such as salaries and other expenditures are open to public inspection.

 

Many of these disadvantages should not be a problem at all if you are running a legitimate non-profit.

A Benefit (b) Corp is an organization with a structure recognized by some states. While profit is allowed to be split among shareholders, there is a legal responsibility to consider the operations impact on society and the environment. This encourages businesses that are non profit to demonstrate ethical social missions and corporate sustainability. In return, the organization becomes eligible for tax benefits and certain types of legal protection.

Advantages

  • Many investors are attracted not just to businesses that make a profit but also ones that has an impact on the world. Benefit Corps often fall into this category.
  • If you become B Corp certified, it tells your consumers that you and your business plays an active role in society and meets exceptional standards.

Disadvantages

  • B Corps are still pretty new and much of the disadvantages cannot yet be identified until more time passes.
  • There aren’t any corporate tax breaks (unless you have tax-exempt status). This could be considered a bad thing based on the goals you have for your business.
  • Only some states recognize this type of incorporation.
  • You always remain accountable to ensure that your business retains the standard expected of a business with B Corp certification.

A professional corporation is a variation of the corporate form available to entrepreneurs who provide professional services—such as doctors, lawyers, accountants, consultants, and architects.

ADVANTAGES

  • PCs can create retirement plans and 401(k) plans for their employees that have higher contribution limits than plans available to individuals or unincorporated businesses.
  • PCs can provide health and life insurance as a tax-free benefit to their employees by establishing a Voluntary Employees’ Beneficiary Association.
  • Unlike sole proprietorship or partnerships, PCs have continuity after the owners die or withdraw.
  • Another advantage is that professional corporations may enable shareholder/employees to avoid personal liability for another employee’s negligence.

There are also a few potential disadvantages associated with the professional corporation form of organization. For example, passive loss limitations may apply that restrict the amount nonactive shareholders can deduct for tax purposes in the event of business losses. In the case of a partnership, all partners are able to deduct their share of business losses from their personal taxable income. Since most professional corporations have only active shareholders and do not experience losses, however, this tax liability is not usually an issue. The flat corporate tax rate that applies to professional corporations may be another source of disadvantage. Retaining earnings within the business will rarely make sense due to the higher tax bracket, and this may reduce the firm’s flexibility in distributing income to shareholder/employees. In contrast, most regular corporations can “split income”—or adjust the amount paid out to shareholder/employees—so that both the company and the individual can gain the most favorable tax bracket possible.
