Why a C-Corp

A C Corporation (C-Corp) is a standard corporation that allows for an unlimited number of individuals or companies to own a portion of the company by distributing shares of stock. It offers protection to owners, investors, and officers from liability resulting from its actions. If you plan to seek outside funding from venture capitalists (VCs) or angel investors, or envision an ultimate initial public offering (IPO) then a C-Corp is likely the right structure for your company. C-Corporation businesses boast a flexible stock structure, which makes it easy to issue different classes of stock, and for investors to use different financial documents, such as convertible notes, SAFEs, warrants, and subordinated debt. It’s also the best structure to raise equity capital through crowdfunding.

C Corporations also allow for maximizing tax deductions for business expenses and benefits. Additionally, they minimize employment taxes since shareholder-employees of C-Corps pay FICA (Social Security and Medicare) taxes only on wages they receive. They’re also attractive to foreign investors (unlike S-Corps, which cannot have any non-resident shareholders). Other strengths include the ease for an investor to exit a C-Corp and that dividends the C-Corp earns from other corporations are largely non-taxable.

The benefits

Ensure Compliance 

Your company’s incorporation essentially serves as its foundation. Don't settle for a weak foundation.

Save money long term 

The formalities for a C Corporation formation are extensive, making it smart to prepare for them as early as possible. C Corporation lawyers will advise you on them and confirm that a C Corporation is even the appropriate business form given your circumstances.

Working with C Corporation lawyers during formation will usually lead to helpful hints on other matters, such as: employee relations, intellectual property, and tax advice.

Brett M.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Brilliant service. Lawyer appointed was very efficient, professional and quick. The whole incorporation process was very smooth. Looking forward to working with LawTrades again.

Tamas P.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Price. I know what I am paying instead of getting surprised. Transparent pricing I know what each bit costs instead of getting a big bill and not knowing what parts cost what and how much was for service vs hard fees such as filing fees. Also things progressed rapidly.

Chet R.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
It easy, convenient & since the funds are released after the project completion, everyone looks forward to meet deadlines.

Yash P.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Amazing service, i cant get over texting to get a lawyer. it's revolutionary and can legitimately improve the US justice system for people with no access to quality lawyers.

Abhi S.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
LawTrades was very user-friendly. I contacted them on a Saturday afternoon and was scheduled for a phone appointment that Monday evening. My attorney, Philip H., designed a thorough Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for my website that was directly tailored to my business. The project was completed on time and to my expectations. I will definitely use this service again. Thank you very much Philip!

Anderson V.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
The response time was amazing, from the first time I entered my mobile continuing with some texts with the para. So easy, I started my process on a Saturday and had an appt for a consultation with an atty on Tuesday. I didn't have to speak with anyone to arrange the meeting and it was all managed over text. Atty has great reputation and was super responsive.

Kristen C.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I was really nervous about finding a legal mind to review my contract, but using LawTrades was very straightforward and the staff were very attentive and helpful at each stage. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for simple legal help.

Melanie W.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Because the most difficult part of finding a lawyer was removed from my worries. I was able to focus on my business. Scheduling and the free consultation were also valuable giving me a piece of mind knowing I get to evaluate the lawyer before moving forward with them. The project managers were proactive, and made sure to reach me through all forms of communication as needed. Finally, my lawyer was very resourceful and I will be referring back them for more business.

Frequently asked
questions

Should I form a C Corporation or an S Corporation?
It’s hard to say without knowing specifics on your company. Given the restrictions that come along with an S-Corp, a C-Corporation offers a bit more flexibility when starting a business. A C-Corporation is a standard corporation whereas an S-Corp has a special tax status assigned to it by the IRS. Both types of corporations offer limited liability protection, have similar structures, corporate formalities, and both are considered separate entities. However, despite their similarities, they have distinct differences.

C-Corps are separate taxable entities and are subject to double taxation. Conversely, S-Corps are pass through entities and pay no corporate income tax. As a result, taxes are paid at the individual level. S-Corp restrictions include no more than 100 shareholders and they must be U.S. citizens or residents. They can also not be owned by other corporations, LLCs, or partnerships. Finally, S-Corps can only have one class of stock while a C-Corporation can have multiple classes. Interested in a S-Corp?

I know I want a C-Corp - but in what state should I set it up?
That’s a question a C-Corporation business lawyer can answer for you. It ultimately depends on a set of criteria, including where you’re going to conduct the majority of your business, where your headquarters will be, and if you’re going to seek venture capital / angel funding. With all that said, Delaware is the most common state for C-Corps to incorporate in, but Wyoming and Nevada are corporate-friendly states as well.
What’s limited liability protection?
It’s the biggest reason why people choose to incorporate their businesses. It provides owners protection from their personal assets against creditors’ claims. As long as the owners truly treat their business as a separate entity, they retain such protection.
What’s an EIN?
It’s the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) way of identifying businesses for tax purposes. For federal income tax purposes, a C-Corp is recognized as a separate tax paying entity.
What’s a registered agent?
A business or individual designated to receive service of process when a business is a party in a legal action or when the state attempts to communicate with the company. Some states, like Delaware, require entities registered within its jurisdiction to maintain an in-state registered agent.
