Limited Liability Company (LLC)

LLC's have become very popular in the past few years and offer a combination of advantages. LLC's provide the liability protection of a corporation, along with the tax benefits of a partnership classification. Because there is no stock authorized in an LLC, there are no stock restrictions attached to the ownership, as there are with "S" corporations. Thus, the LLC has greater flexibility than the S Corporation in accommodating various forms of ownership, including trusts, corporations and non-resident aliens.

advantages:

  • Limits personal liability
  • No double-taxation. Income is taxed on the level of the member.
  • In most states, no annual meeting of the members is required.
  • May opt to be treated as an S-Corporation for tax purposes, allowing for more tax advantages.
  • No ownership restrictions.

S-CORP

The S-Corporation is a popular choice among small business owners because it allows just one level of taxation, as opposed to the double taxation that C-Corporations are subject to. An S Corporation gives the advantage of pass through taxation, which allows each shareholder to report their share of the company's profit or loss on their individual tax returns. The liability protection is the same as it would be for a C-Corporation.

There are restrictions with regard to ownership of an S Corporation. The shareholders must be U.S. citizens, the company must be a domestic corporation, must have only one class of stock, the shareholders must be individuals or their estates or certain tax-exempt entities or trusts (i.e., not another corporate entity) and the number of shareholders of an S-Corporation cannot exceed 100 (with family members eligible for treatment as a single shareholder). To qualify as an S-Corporation for federal tax purposes the company must make an S-Corporation election through Internal Revenue Service Form 2553.

advantages:

  • Pass-through taxation (the company's tax obligation is passed along to shareholders)
  • Once-a-year tax filing requirement (vs. quarterly for a C Corporation)
  • Limited liability protection
  • Perpetual existence
  • Business expenses may be tax deductible

C-CORP

The most common type of corporation is the C Corporation. Even those who choose to create an S Corporation, start with a C Corporation before making the “S” tax election.  A C Corporation shields the personal assets of the business owners from civil judgments by forming a separate legal structure that takes on the liability for business activity. A properly formed and maintained C Corp creates a veil of protection for the personal assets its shareholders, officers, directors, and employees should any judgments against the business occur. There may also be tax advantages associated with C Corps due to deductibles on employee benefits and other business expenses.

Though this structure offers benefits not shared by sole proprietorships, there is a downside to the C Corporation. The C Corporation is taxed initially on the earnings of the business and the shareholders are taxed on the dividends received. This is often referred to as “double taxation”.

advantages:

  • Limits personal liability
  • May increase your tax advantages
  • Lends itself to more credibility with potential customers and vendors
  • Easily transfer ownership
  • Establish 401K/health benefits for employees more easily

Non-Profit

While non-profit corporations are quite commonly used for charitable purposes, there are other non-charitable business purposes that may lend themselves to this model.  In order to apply for tax-exempt status such as 501(c)3, a non-profit corporation must meet specific requirements and must be exclusively used for charitable purposes. 

Other uses of non-profit corporations that may not be considered as charitable include, but are not limited to neighborhood associations, property management, clubs, and other foundations.

advantages:

  • For companies formed for religious, educational, or other charitable purposes:
  • The opportunity to apply for tax-exempt status with the IRS
  • Limited liability protection.
  • Perpetual existence
  • Ability to apply for certain public and private grants.

FAQS
STATE INFO
  • What is a Limited Liability Company (LLC)?

    A Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a type of business structure which has characteristics of both a sole-proprietorship and a corporation. LLCs are able to be treated as a partnership or sole-proprietorship for taxation purposes while offering the personal liability protection of similar to that of a corporation.

    Owners of an LLC are called members. Most states do not restrict ownership, and so members may include individuals, corporations, other LLCs and foreign entities. There is no maximum number of members. Most states also permit “single-member” LLCs, those having only one owner.

    A few types of businesses generally cannot be LLCs, such as banks and insurance companies. Check your state’s requirements and the federal tax regulations for further information. There are special rules for foreign LLCs.

  • How many people are needed to form an LLC?

    An LLC must have a minimum of one member.  There is nothing specifying a maximum number of members. 

  • Who can be the member of an LLC?

    Typically, there are no restrictions regarding membership of an LLC.  A member can be a corporation or other business entity.  It is not necessary for the business entity to be a US business.  Of course, the member can also be a natural person.  If the member is a natural person, some states require that the person be 18 years or older.  There is no requirement for a member who is a natural person to be a US resident or citizen.

  • What is the difference between a member and a manager?

    In an LLC, the member is the owner of the company (like the shareholder of a corporation).  The member has contributed to the company and has a vested interest.  The manager of an LLC is someone who has been appointed by the members to handle the affairs of the business (similar to the director of a corporation).  The manager may, but is not required to be a member.

FAQS
STATE INFO
  • What is required to form an S-Corp?

    In order to form the LLC, Articles of Organization (sometimes referred to as a Certificate of Organization) must be filed with the state where the LLC is to be formed.  The Articles of Organization will require basic information about the company such as the proposed name, registered agent name and address, and business purpose.  CorpCo takes care of the preparation and filing of this document and can provide registered agent services in all 50 US States as well as the District of Columbia.

    At the level of taxation, S-Status is not automatically assumed.  It will be necessary to elect to be treated this way with the federal government by filing a form 2553 with the IRS.  In addition to this special requirement with the IRS, the company may also be required to elect to be treated as an S-Corporation on the state level by filing a special form with that state’s revenue department.

  • What is required to keep my company active?

    Each state has varying requirements for keeping the company active.  Most will require some sort of annual filing which may require company details and usually involve a filing fee.  For more information, you may check the information specific to your chosen state on the state info tab above.

  • What happens when I order an S-Corporation formation from CorpCo?

    You will receive confirmation of your order by email.  At the same time, CorpCo will receive and review your request for accuracy and will begin preparing the necessary paperwork.  CorpCo will draft your formation document and act as the organizer.  The filing is then submitted to the state for processing.  If your order includes Express Processing, it will take priority over other routine requests which means a faster processing time.  While turnaround times vary greatly from state to state, routine processing is generally about 7-10 days.  With CorpCo’s Express Processing, orders can be completed in as little as 24-48 hours in many states.  Once your company has been approved by the state, CorpCo will send confirmation of filing which usually includes a file-stamped copy of the filing and an instrument of organization.  If your company formation package includes a corporate kit, CorpCo will ship the kit under separate cover within 3-5 days of company formation.

    The incorporation process is the same as the process to form a C-Corporation.  In other words, the filings with the state do not look different for a C- Corporation or an S-Corporation.  The difference in the two corporation types takes place with the federal (IRS) or state revenue division filings.

  • What is Form 2553 and how do I file it:

    The 2553 is the IRS tax status election form which is required if a corporation wishes to be treated as an S-Corporation for tax purposes.  This form must be filed within 75 days of the date of formation (or start of business), within 75 days of a new tax year, or any time during the year before the year the election should be effective.

  • What are the main differences between a C-Corporation and an S-Corporation?

    The key difference is that while the C-Corporation is “double-taxed”, meaning that it is taxed on both the corporate level (corporate taxes based on the company profits) and on the individual level (shareholder taxes based on personal dividends received), the S-Corporation allows for taxation at the individual shareholder level, based on that shareholder’s share of the profits and/or losses of the corporation.

    C-Corporations can choose to be treated as an S-Corporation by filing the form 2553 with the IRS.  In this way, they can retain the same liability protection while affording the shareholders the ability to report their portion of the corporation’s profits and/or losses via their individual tax returns.  

    C-Corporations can have an unlimited number of shareholders who are not required to be residents of the United States.  S-Corporations can have no more than 100 shareholders, who must all be either US citizens or permanent residents of the United States.

FAQS
STATE INFO
  • What is required to form a C-Corporation?

    In order to form a C-Corporation, Articles of Incorporation (sometimes referred to as a Certificate of Incorporation) must be filed with the state where the C- Corporation is to be formed.  The Articles of Incorporation will require basic information about the company such as the proposed name, registered agent name and address, principal office address, and business purpose.  CorpCo takes care of the preparation and filing of this document and can provide registered agent services in all 50 US States as well as the District of Columbia.

  • Can the personal asset protection provided by forming a C-Corp be taken away?

    Personal asset protection can be lost if the owners of the corporation do not maintain a proper organizational balance.  Shareholders should consult with attorneys, accountants, and/or financial advisors to determine proper handling of corporate/personal income or expenses in order to avoid inappropriate expenditures which may result in a loss of personal asset protection.  Furthermore, it is important that the important decisions of the company be properly indicated in the minutes of the corporation, taken at a duly authorized meeting of the board of directors.  

    The “corporate veil” created by the formation of the C Corporation can also be lost if the business fails to meet the annual requirements of its state of incorporation.  CorpCo can help you to meet the annual requirements in your state of organization and will send notification of required annual reporting with the Secretary of State offices as indicated.  For more information on annual requirements, please review the State Info tab above.

  • What is required to keep my company active?

    Each state has varying requirements for keeping the company active.  Most will require some sort of annual filing which may require company details and usually involves a filing fee.  CorpCo can help you to fulfill these requirements in all states.  For more information regarding state requirements, you may check the information specific to your chosen state on the state info tab above.

  • What happens when I order a C-Corp formation from CorpCo?

    You will receive confirmation of your order by email.  At the same time, CorpCo will receive and review your request for accuracy and will begin preparing the necessary paperwork.  CorpCo will draft your formation document and act as the organizer.  The filing is then submitted to the state for processing.  If your order includes Express Processing, it will take priority over other routine requests which means a faster processing time.  While turnaround times vary greatly from state to state, routine processing is generally about 7-10 days.  With CorpCo’s Express Processing, orders can be completed in as little as 24-48 hours.  Once your company has been approved by the state, CorpCo will send confirmation of filing which usually includes a file-stamped copy of the filing and an instrument of organization.  If your company formation package includes a corporate kit, CorpCo will ship the kit under separate cover within 3-5 days of company formation.

  • What is the organizational structure of a C-Corporation?

    The owners of a C-Corporation are called shareholders.  The shareholders elect directors, who are responsible for setting the corporate goals and for general management of the corporation.  Those directors appoint officers (e.g. President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer) and other managers who are charged with carrying out the daily business and with enacting the directives that are handed down by the directors.

  • What are the main differences between a C-Corporation and an S-Corporation?

    C-Corporations file IRS form 1120 to report corporate income to the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS taxes company profits at corporate tax rates and dividends paid to shareholders at individual tax rates. For this reason, you may hear tax professionals refer to "double taxation" of a C-Corporation.

    C-Corporations can elect "pass-through" taxation by applying to the IRS for status as a Subchapter S-Corporation (IRS form 2553). The S-Corporation provides the same protection from personal liability. However, owners can report their share of profit and loss in the company on their individual tax returns. The S-Corporation files IRS form 1120S to report income.

    S Corporations have a number of restrictions. Most notably, only U.S. citizens or permanent residents may own an S-Corporation. An S-Corporation may not have more than 100 shareholders.

FAQS
STATE INFO
  • I want to file for tax-exempt status.  What makes this type of filing different?

    In order to file for tax-exempt status with the IRS, your non-profit incorporation documents must reflect the details required by the IRS.  These details include, but may not be limited to a specific business purpose which indicates that the company is exclusively organized for charitable purposes and an indication as to how the assets of the company will be distributed upon its dissolution.

  • What happens when I order a non-profit corporation formation from CorpCo?

    You will receive confirmation of your order by email.  At the same time, CorpCo will receive and review your request for accuracy and will begin preparing the necessary paperwork.  If you are applying for 501(c)3 status with the IRS, we will require further information and will contact you to request those details.  CorpCo will draft your formation document and send to you for review and the signature of the person to act as incorporator.  The filing is then submitted to the state for processing.  If your order includes Express Processing, it will take priority over other routine requests which means a faster processing time.  While turnaround times vary greatly from state to state, routine processing is generally about 7-10 days.  With CorpCo’s Express Processing, orders can be completed in as little as 24-48 hours in many states.  Once your company has been approved by the state, CorpCo will send confirmation of filing which usually includes a file-stamped copy of the filing.  If your company formation package includes a corporate kit, CorpCo will ship the kit under separate cover within 3-5 days of company formation.
