So you are looking to incorporate your small business. The best choice of business entity to use for your small business depends on your business and your goals. There are several different options for business entities and each one has its own set of advantages and disadvantages. The choice of entity can affect the tax implications, personal liability and ease of adding or removing stakeholders in the future. Here are some of the primary choices of business entities:


Limited Liability Company


LLCs are the most popular choice for small business owners. The advantages of choosing an LLC for your business is the ease and cost-effectiveness of the formation process, the limitations of personal liability, and the ease of tax planning.


S Corporation


This can be either a corporation, limited liability company or a partnership that makes an election under Subchapter S of Chapter 1 of the Internal Revenue Code. An S corporation elects to pay no income taxes and is taxed as a partnership. Shareholders report the income and losses on each's individual tax returns.


C Corporation



A C corporation is taxed separately from its shareholders. A C corporation can deduct certain business expenses that a S Corporation may not be allowed to deduct.  

Partnership


A partnership is an agreement between one or more partners and is not taxed as a separate entity. The partners report the income and expenses of the partnership on each of their individual returns. A partnership does not provide the limits on personal liability that a LLC or Corporation may otherwise provide.
