Common LLC, INC, and DBA Filing Questions

Both corporate entity types provide limited liability protection for your personal assets from any business liabilities. 

One major difference is flexibility in ownership and management of the corporation. A Limited Liability Company (LLC) must be member-managed, or manager-managed by an appointed individual via an operating agreement.

An S-Corp and C-Corp must have officers elected by shareholders to oversee operations. The business owners (i.e. shareholders) can also act as directors and officers. 

Another major difference is how easy it is to change ownership of a corporation. With an LLC, this can only happen subject to the terms of an operating agreement. With an S-Corp or C-Corp, ownership changes are as simple as selling stock to the new owners.

Lastly, something important to consider are the tax implications of each type of corporation. LLC’s and S-Corp’s are subject to pass-through taxation, which means that any profits are accounted for in the personal taxes of each member or shareholder. With a C-Corp, the corporation is taxed at the corporate level and then any owners are taxed again on their personal income.

There are many more nuances and considerations, if you are at all unclear we strongly recommend that you consult with legal and tax professionals.

There are a lot of consideration here, but simply put most small business owners incorporate in the state in which they do business in. That means if you’re in California, then you incorporate in California and so on. 

Many states offer various advantages to new and existing corporations and it’s why some states like Delaware are extremely popular for new formations. Delaware, for example, has favorable litigation rules benefitting corporate officers and directors. Some states, like Montana and Wyoming, offer low fees and minimum upkeep requirements as an incentive.

The ultimate decision is up to you and your legal and tax advisors.

The primary differences really come down to taxation. An S-Corp is taxed on a pass-through basis, so that owners are taxed on their income just once. While with a C-Corp taxation happens at the corporate level, and then again at the ownership (shareholder) level for any personal income.

C-Corp’s provide additional benefits over S-Corp’s when it comes to stock issuance. A C-Corp can have unlimited shareholders (i.e. a publicly traded company), while an S-Corp is limited to 100 shareholders at any time.

A corporation is considered a separate legal entity from its shareholders or members. As long as the corporation behaves in that manner, and keeps up with formalities required by the State, any party seeking to collect on any obligation that the corporation is liable for cannot go after assets of the owners.

Please consult with a legal professional before making any determinations regarding legal liability.

A Registered Agent is required by every State at the time of formation. The Registered Agent is the designated party to receive critical notices and information from the State, during normal business hours. Learn more about Registered Agent requirements and services here.

The Registered Agent’s contact information is publicly listed, and so many small business owners choose to retain an outside party as their agent to avoid having any personal information listed publicly. You can choose Registered Agent service from for $129/year.

Employer Identification Numbers are provided by the IRS and are basically the equivalent of an individual’s Social Security Number, except for a corporation. Learn more about EIN’s here.

You will need an EIN to open a business bank account, work with business partners and vendors, file your business tax returns and other critical functions.

You can apply for your EIN with the IRS completely free and online. There are several nuances though, and if you just want to have a professional take care of it then you can choose that option on for $49.
