Comparison of Business Entities:

C corporation status is appropriate for:

  • When owners live outside the country
  • When owners live in a state with a state income tax
  • When several individuals or other entities are involved in ownership

S corporation status is appropriate for:

  • Companies expecting start-up losses during the initial years of operation.
  • Companies with no intent of going public in the future.
  • Companies that do not expect to issue multiple classes of stock.
  • Companies that might be subject to the Alternative Minimum Tax.
  • Owners live in a state with no personal state income tax.

LLC status is appropriate for:

  • When the business is a partnership
  • When real estate is owned for investment purposes
  • When several entities own the business
  • When the owner is seeking complete protection from personal liability

The best entity for building business credit for your company is one that will:

  • Separate you from your business
  • Have its own federal tax identification number
  • Separate your company's business debt from owners/officers

The business entities that provide these are the following:

  • S Corporation
  • C Corporation
  • Limited Liability Company (LLC)
