Nevada vs. Virginia Incorporation Comparison

Virginia’s corporate tax outlook is among the best in the country. The corporate tax rate for businesses incorporated in Virginia is 6%, though there is a Virginia franchise tax. Virginia also offers the asset protection of limiting a creditor’s remedy to charging order. Still, incorporating in Nevada has advantages. Nevada has no franchise tax or corporate income tax. Charging order is a creditor’s sole remedy in Nevada as well, but you can also use the Series LLC and benefit from the Nevada business court.
