Advantages of forming a C Corp

A C Corp is the only type of organization that can "go public" and sell an unlimited number of ownership shares. They do typically get taxed at a higher rate due to taxes being imposed at both a personal and corporate level, however having access to more capital, higher revenue potential, and ultimately profits, often offsets this.

Why choose a C Corp?

Personal Asset Protection
Ability to Raise Capital
Unlimited Owners
Option to Sell Shares

Common Questions About Starting a C Corporation

If you have more questions, please give us a call at (877) 777-0454. We love to help!

  • What are the primary advantages of a C Corporation?

    The C Corporation is the oldest and one of the most common business structures, and is typically what comes to mind when the average person hears the word "corporation". It provides the greatest level of separation and protection between the company and its owners, and allows the company to raise capital through the issuance of publicly traded stock.

  • Are there any restrictions on who can file to form a C Corporation?

    One of the C Corporation's greatest strengths as a structure is that it typically has no requirements regarding who can become part of its ownership. However, a few states do require that an individual be at least 18 years of age to officially become an owner.

  • What are the tax implications of a C Corporation?

    C Corporations and their owners are taxed separately from one another, which results in "double taxation". This means that the corporation will be taxed on its profits and then each individual owner will be taxed again on the income distributed to them at a personal level. Filing as an S corp can help business owners avoid this, but will also open them up to paying self-employment taxes.

  • Are there a required number of individuals needed to form a C Corporation?

    Most states only require one director in order to start a C Corporation. However, some states impose a minimum number based on the number of shareholders the company has. This required number is typically never lower than three and there is no maximum limit.
