The Benefits of Incorporation

So, you have finally incorporated your business. Or maybe you are still on the fence about whether or not this is the right move for your business. Here,
we have outlined a few of the most beneficial reasons for incorporating your business and what you can expect if you decide to go this route.

Protect Your Personal Assets

By incorporating, you are legally separating your business from your own person, no matter which structure you choose. That means your business can pay its own taxes, take out loans and file its own lawsuit. This level of separation shields your personal assets and those of your shareholders from the debts and obligations accrued by your business. Your personal assets will only be fully protected if your business continues to be in good standing with your state. You can learn more about what it means to be in good standing on our Certificate of Good Standing page.

Add Credibility to Your Business

Adding any modifier to the end of your business name, such as INC. or LLC can prove your credibility as a business to potential vendors, customers, and lenders. By quickly showing people that your business is operating within the standards of the law and is registered by the state, you are much more likely to attract reputable business of your own. This indicator could also be the difference between winning contracts or not, depending on your chosen industry.

Gain Access to Major Tax Advantages

Each business structure comes with its own unique tax advantages. The most beneficial structure for reducing taxes is a non-profit, as you can apply for complete tax-exempt status. However, each of the other structures affords you certain benefits of their own, which are not available to individual taxpayers. For more information on these tax benefits, visit each of the pages outlining the business structures under the Start a Business Tab. 

Attract More Investors

The structure of a corporation is specifically designed to help distribute ownership in a simple way. Because of this, you will be able to sell shares of stock in your business, drawing individuals or groups who are ready to invest in your vision.
