At the Law Offices of David J. Reed we can incorporate your business.  Many business incorporate for the limited liability and some for the tax advantages.  See our Corporation Primer for a more complete discussion of incorporating and its benefits.  Some of the highlights of incorporating are listed below.  

  • A business can be started as a corporation or an existing business can be converted to a corporation.  
  • One of the most important advantages of incorporating is limited liability.  In a partnership generally, the debts of the partnership are also the personal responsibility of the partners.  In a corporation, generally the debts of the corporation are not the personal responsibility of the individual shareholders.  
  • There are certain Federal and State tax advantages.  These vary from business but can in some cases be very substantial.
