Things To Know From The Start About Your Corporation
Our Montgomery County-based attorneys can inform you every step of the way as you:
- Select your corporation type. Will you create an S corp or a C corp? An S corp is known as a pass-through corporation because only shareholders are taxed on profits. The corporation itself is not taxed. A C corp is understood to offer the greatest protections for shareholders and officers, shielding them from personal liability related to the corporation’s activities. However, its profits are essentially taxed twice: The corporation itself must pay, and shareholders then also pay personal income taxes on the profit distributions that they receive.
- Fulfill necessary incorporation processes. Our corporate lawyers can help you choose a name, designate a registered agent for the corporation, hold an initial organizational meeting, create articles of incorporation and get an employer identification number (EIN).
- Make your organizational meeting count. We cannot emphasize enough the importance of completing a successful initial organization meeting. At this meeting of the minds, you will determine the share structure of your corporation, create bylaws and select initial officers. A well-done organizational meeting can set your corporation sailing toward success. Our lawyers can help ensure that you maximize the usefulness of each phase of the organizational meeting.
