What Are The Benefits of Incorporations? We The People of NY Explains, Manhattan, New York

Choosing a legal entity is one of the many important decisions you make when starting up your own business. We The People of NY, trusted legal services providers in New York, recommends incorporating for the following reasons:

  • Liability Protection: A corporation is a completely separate legal entity from its owners, meaning that you are not personally responsible for the company’s debts. In the case of bankruptcy, it’s comforting to know you won’t lose your house or car.
  • Tax Advantages: Corporations allow you to write off business costs, such as operating expenses and health insurance premiums. An S-Corp allows you to avoid paying higher business income taxes while still enjoying the benefits of incorporation.
  • Credibility: Formally incorporating can help you grow your business by presenting a more professional appearance to potential clients and partners.
  • Easier Access to Funds: Selling stock is a fast way to raise funds for expansion or new projects, and most banks prefer to issue business loans to borrowers who have officially incorporated.
  • Retirement Opportunities: 401ks and other retirement funds can be easier to establish.
  • Perpetual Existence: As a separate legal entity, a corporation does not cease to exist if you die or sell your shares, so the business will go on.
