Why Choose an S-Corporation?

An S-Corporation or “S-Corp” provides the same limited liability to owners as a C-Corporation, meaning that owners are not personally responsible for business debts. S-corporations, however, have pass through taxation, which means the business income/loss is reported on the owners’ personal tax return. This allows owners (shareholders) to avoid double taxation.

S-Corporation Advantages:

  • Limited personal liability (owners not typically responsible for business debts)
  • Unlimited life
  • Unlimited owners (shareholders)
  • Easy transfer of ownership (through sale of stock)
  • Pass through taxation

We can help you get incorporated for as low as $295.00.

Why Choose a C-Corporation?

A C-Corporation or “C-Corp” is the most common corporation type but not always the top choice for small business owners. Owners who work in the business are treated and taxed as employees of the corporation and are only required to pay taxes on the money they draw from the business.

C-Corporation Advantages:

  • Limited personal liability (owners not typically responsible for business debts)
  • Unlimited life
  • Unlimited owners (shareholders)
  • Easy transfer of ownership (through sale of stock)
  • Raise capital more easily

C-Corporation is double taxed. Which means that the corporation is taxed on the profit, and once the profit is distributed to sharehoulders (owners), shareholders are taxed again.

Why Choose a Limited Liability Company (LLC)?

A Limited Liability Company or “LLC” is one of the more popular ways for new and small businesses to operate. The LLC is also commonly perceived as an easier type of business to run than a corporation since there is less paperwork or documentation required. In addition, LLC’s provide limited liability protection to their owners (called members).

LLC Advantages:

  • Limited personal liability (owners not typically responsible for business debts)
  • Pass through taxation (income/loss reported on the owners’ personal tax returns)
  • Flexibly management and ownership structure
  • Less formalities and paperwork

LLC Requirements (For Contractors):

  • Required to have 1,000,000.00 liability insurance.
  • Required to have $100,000.00 bond in addition to $15,000.00 bond.(This bond could cost at least $2,000/yr)

We strongly encourage you to consult your attorney before choosing an LLC formation. This option could be very expensive for contractors in California.

We can help you form a Limited Liability Company for as low as $295.00.
