Which entity type is best for my business – LLC or corporation?


LLC Formation or Incorporation Filing Service


That's a question that ultimately only you can answer.

Corporations have been around for hundreds of years, so the paperwork to form and maintain them can seem archaic at times. But if you plan to "go public" soon (for example, to make a public offering of your company's shares on the New York Stock Exchange), this is the only business entity type that can do it.

LLC stands for Limited Liability Company. It is a newer business entity type, but it has fast become the preference among many new small business owners. The reason is that LLCs were designed to offer the personal asset protection of Corporations, but with fewer initial and on-going requirements. For example, LLCs generally do not have to keep detailed meeting minutes, or even hold formal meetings at all.
