S Corporation Or C Corporation? What Is Best For My Company?
At the law office of Kevork Adanas, P.C., we understand the legal and practical realities in determining what type of corporation will best meet a company's needs. The two types of corporations are S Corporations (S-corp) and C Corporations (C-corp).
There are many similarities and differences between these two entities. First, the similarities.
- S-corps and C-corps will protect shareholders from personal liability for corporate debts.
- S-corps and C-corps are both managed by a board of directors, who are elected by shareholdrs. The corporate officers, who are appointed by the directors, take on the daily management of the company.
- S-corps and C-corps must follow similar corporate formalities in terms of board meetings, annual reports and minutes.
Of the many differences between an S-corp and a C-corp, perhaps this difference is the most critical. With an S-corp, the entity is not taxed. Instead, the shareholders are taxed directly on any corporate income. C corps are taxed, and only dividends are taxed at the individual level. There are other differences as well. S-corps are limited to having more than 100 shareholders, and nonresident aliens cannot hold shares in an S-corp. Further, an S-corp must be filed with the IRS within 60 days of formation. We also represent businesses that want to form a limited liability company (LLC).
