Post Incorporation Docs 

A Post Incorporation gives you everything your company needs after filing the certificate of incorporation


There’s a lot to do after incorporating a company. For liability and tax purposes, it is crucial to complete the post-incorporation setup before the company starts conducting business or takes an investment. Sure you can find a laundry list of procedures and rules to follow online but is that stuff even accurate? It’s not worth finding out. Stuff like determining how many shares should be allocated and adopting a stock plan both super important, and overwhelming. When something legal-related is of importance and seems to be “too much” for a non-lawyer, it’s time to turn to LawTrades. 

How legal advice can help

Hiring a good lawyer will provide vital assistance in
almost every aspect of your post incorporation. 
You won’t mess it up
Dealing with legal issues as a non-lawyer is too risky - especially when dealing with corporate formalities. The consequences for messing up are severe as well. Failing to complete the necessary steps following formation can lead to “piercing the corporate veil.”
Lay the foundation
Completing post incorporation requirements correctly can make or break your company’s well-being. The troubling part is that failing to do it correctly can appear years down the road when it’s too late to correct.
Save time 
It’ll take you many hours and days just to learn how to complete these tasks, aside from the hours you’ll spend drafting and implementing them. Leave the post incorporation to the legal professionals.
Prevent future issues
Receive proactive legal risk management that will help you avoid problems before they arise by tapping into senior attorneys with considerable business experience.

Common Questions

What are bylaws?
Bylaws specify how the company is operated. It outlines rights and power distribution among the officers or managers. Bylaws make it easy for a company to run and manage as well as identify, how it will be run and managed through bylaws. 
Does a corporation have to issue stock after incorporating?
Issuing stock is a formality with corporations. In order to be fully compliant with all of the operating formalities, issuing stock is a necessary procedure. 
What does it mean to “pierce the corporate veil?”
It’s a situation that occurs when a court sets aside limited liability and hold a corporation's shareholders (SHs) or directors personally liable. A court pierce the corporate veil after concluding that the corporation was merely an alter ego of the SHs / directors. At this point, the wrongful SHs / directors are treated as if they are agents of the corporation. A major factor used to justify piercing the veil is when the SHs/directors deviate from corporate formalities. 
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.
