Benefits of Forming a C Corporation

Understand why you should form a C Corp instead of other types of entities.

Go Public

If you’re forming a C Corp, you’re in luck because as an entity you will be allowed to go public and sell as many owned shares as you like. You will also have increased access to capital, high revenue, and other profits.

Assets Protection

You are free from financial and legal liabilities because a C Corporation will help you protect your personal assets at all costs. In simple words, you will no longer be liable to distribute your share or pay debts during unavoidable circumstances.

Tax Planning Opportunities

As a C corp owner, you have an opportunity to choose from the wide tax planning structure. However, we suggest that you discuss your tax policies with a trusted expert before taking any major decisions.

Well-Established Corporate Rules

C corporation will help you better predict the legal liabilities. You can use the same cautionary knowledge as your asset to form an agreement. This document, in turn, will not only protect you but also give you an upper hand in managing your business the way you deem it fit.

Zero Shareholder Restrictions

You have no restriction on who can hold or not hold your shares, unless, of course, your governing documents say otherwise. So, freely decide what you would like to do with your shares and own stocks wilfully.

Attract Investors

Unlike S Corp and LLC, a C corp has an added advantage to attract investors. This also includes receiving capital through equity financing. And the best part is most investors such as venture capitalists prefer investing in C corp over S Corporation.

Frequently Asked Questions

The state filing fees start at $100, and our service charges begin at $129. You can contact us for more questions on our pricing plans. Or chat with our customer executives to get more clarity.
The maintenance of a C corporation organization must be evidenced in administration and record of regular director and shareholder meetings. Business transactions must be kept separate from owner expenses for purposes of Corporation tax reporting.

These are basic C corp requirements:
  1. Document investment capitalization for official approval.
  2. Establish proper shareholder guidelines to meet your eligibility criteria.
  3. Separate your personal transactions from business expenses.
  4. Keep an official record of your organization for good administrative standing.
One of the major differences between a C corporation and an S Corporation is that of single-layer taxation. An S corp is not required to pay corporate tax. This also means that if you own an S corporation, your shareholder income is taxed at an individual level.

The other differences include double taxation, which is true in the case of C corporations as they have to regularly file corporate-level income taxes. In addition to this, S corps are allowed to own up to 100 shareholders, whereas C corps have no ownership limits.
C corporation follows an individual tax system. One of the major reasons why C corps are often faced with double taxation implications. And by double taxation, we mean that you have to pay your personal income tax and taxes levied upon your profits separately.
Similar to S corp and LLC, a C Corporation is a legal structure for businesses which determines how a business entity is taxed. The ‘C’ here means that the businesses are taxed according to the provisions of subchapter C of the Internal Revenue Code.
Yes, a C Corp can be made up of one member only. As the owner of a company, you can choose to be taxed as an S corp or a C corp. However, if you elect a C Corp status, you will not be subject to a pass through taxation which is the case with an S Corp.
The federal corporate tax rate applicable on C corporations as of now is 21%. The combined average can vary based on the state corporate taxes levied on your business. These generally vary from 0 to 11.5%.
A C Corp is considered as a separate legal entity and can offer following advantages:
  • Highest level of limited liability protection. 
  • More than 100 shareholders. 
  • Can easily accumulate capital due to no limitation on shareholders at a low tax rate. 
  • Easy transfer of shares. 
  • Offers a wide range of deductions and expenses by the IRS.
One of the biggest advantages of having a C Corp Status is the wide array tax deductions that are allowed to them by the IRS. Here’s a list of some of them:
  • Personnel tax deductions
      • Healthcare
      • All training expenses
      • Sick pay
      • Vacations
      • Benefits for disables employees
      • Retirement plans
  • Rental or Office maintenance expenses
      • Insurance premiums 
      • Legal or professional fees. 
      • Supplies or materials for offices. 
      • Cost of licenses or business permits.
  • Tax deductions on company vehicles
      • Insurance, memberships or installations in the vehicle. 
      • Maintenance costs such as oil changes, fuel, lease payments, etc.
  • Startup Tax Deductions
    • IRS allows deduction of the first $5000 of start-up costs on corporate taxes (attorney fees, advertising costs, wages for trainees, etc.)
Double taxation: A C Corp offers a disadvantage of double taxation. It generally happens when a C Corp incurs profit and splits it among the shareholders. In this case, the profits will be taxes at the corporate level and the individual level too. However, investors have to pay taxes if and when they receive the dividend from the corporation.  High corporate tax rates: Businesses can incur high tax rates in case the annual income exceeds $75,000 (not applicable for the first time). No tax deductions for corporate losses: Shareholders cannot deduct company losses on their tax returns. 
You can qualify for a C Corp Status if you fulfill the following legal requirements:
  • Must have an Annual General Meeting or AGM for all your shareholders and board of directors and discuss strategies, opportunities, etc. 
  • Appoint board of directors elected by the shareholders. 
  • Give ownership of the business by issuing shares. 
  • Assign the position of shareholders, directors, officers and employees within the corporation. 
Yes, all C Corps companies are publicly traded. This allows them to sell 100% of their stocks and have multiple shareholders. However, a C corp can have only one class of stock.
Unlike S Corporations, there are no limitations for a C Corp business entity. In the case of stock ownership, C Corps stocks can be owned by anyone. This includes non-US citizens and other business entities.
C Corps are supposed to file for taxes with the IRS using a designated form – IRS Form 1120. All domestic corporations (C corp and LLCs) use Form 1120 to file for taxes and gain an insight of how much they need to pay for the financial year.
