FIRST DREAM IT, THEN MAKE IT COME TRUE:
Perhaps there is a little idea in your head that doesn’t let you sleep, after years of working Monday to Friday and even on weekends, you believe you had enough. It is time to stop making money for others and develop your own entrepreneurship. Let’s say you’ve just opened your doors, and you’re doing well. On the other hand, maybe your small business hasn’t even gotten off the ground just yet. Either way, incorporating is a good decision for most businesses, and despite popular belief, it’s not just reserved for those that are well-established. There are multiple benefits of incorporation, all of which you should fully understand before you decide to make your move.
Here are some benefits of incorporating your business you should know before you take the leap.
1. Protect Your Personal Assets from Creditors: By incorporating your business as a Limited Liability Company (#LLC), or #Corporation (C-Corp or S-Corp), you are protecting your personal assets from business debts.
2. Protect Your Personal Assets from Lawsuits: Along with the protection from creditors comes protection from lawsuits filed against your business. Without incorporating, your personal assets remain at risk to anyone filing a lawsuit against your business.
3. Tax Benefits and Money Savings: Another benefit of incorporating your business, and one of the most crucial to leverage, is the many tax deductions that are available to incorporated businesses, here are some things we can use:
· Business losses.
· Some of your business investments.
· Travel expenses related to your business.
· Fringe benefits such as medical insurance.
· Many daily expenses required to operate your business.
· Social Security taxes that you’re paying into the system.
4. Easier to Raise Capital: This mostly means that if you plan on borrowing money or applying for a loan, it adds a sense of legitimacy to your business.
5. Your Business Reputation Is Enhanced: Your business’ reputation isn’t just based on the amount of Yelp and Google reviews you get or the good work you do within the community (Though, that counts, too!) When you incorporate, you gain a sense of higher worth in the eyes of new customers.
6. It Protects Your Brand: Incorporation allows you to protect your business’ name, your brand recognition and your trademark.
7. You Gain Privacy: Perhaps the most important benefit of incorporating for some people, is the level of privacy that comes with incorporating your business. When you incorporate, you can keep your personal identity hidden. All your business affairs are private and kept confidential unless you choose to disclose them.
With the benefits of incorporating so clear, is it time to make the decision and make you dreams come true, but now another concern arises:
- How do I incorporate my business?
- Where should I register my nascent business ?
- What kind of organization should I incorporate?

The incorporation process is quite simple, the first part of the process is with the State of formation, we only need the following information:
1 - Company’s name: One of the benefits to operating a business through a corporation is the ability to name your legal entity. Usually, this means coming up with an attractive name that you hope will be memorable for your clients.
2 - Contact Information: Address, telephone number, email, image of an ID (Passport, driver's license, green Card) and charges of every single member or officer of the company.
3 - Distribution: percentage of ownership of each partner or quantity of stocks of each shareholder.

After your business is formed, we'll need to apply for Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN). An EIN is a nine-digit number that is issued by the IRS and used to uniquely identify employer tax accounts. Think of it as a Social Security Number (SSN) for your business.
Our filing experts make filing your EIN application quick and easy. As soon the IRS issues an EIN Number, you must open a Business bank account, this is one of the most important things you can do when starting a company.
A business bank account plays a key role in growing your business, while protecting it and yourself at the same time. It allows you to keep track of business expenses, simplify tax reporting, and deposit payments under your company name.
It's important to keep in mind that your responsibility as a business owner doesn’t just end when the registration is completed. You have to make sure that you're knowledgeable on annual compliance matters.
