Incorporation/LLC


Incorporation

Incorporation means creating a new corporation. A corporation is an organization that is approved and registered in the State of Florida to conduct business. It is a entity separate and distinct from its owners. Most people form corporations to protect their personal assets because the owners of a corporation are generally not personally responsible for the corporation’s debts. This is called “limited liability protection.”

The creation of this entity generally requires the preparation and filing of certain documents with The Department of Corporations for the  State of Florida. The formation, and running the corporation generally requires more formality than is required for most types of businesses. The corporation is formed by an incorporator, owned by shareholders, managed by directors and typically operated by its officers.

A nonprofit corporation is a entity that is formed for specific purposes. Nonprofits may be involved in a wide range of areas relating to the arts, charities, early childhood education, healthcare, politics, religion, research, sports or some other endeavor.

The creation of this entity generally requires the preparation and filing of certain documents with The Department of Corporations for the State of Florida. The act of incorporating creates a entity enabling the organization to be treated as a corporation and to enter into business dealings, form contracts, and own property as any other individual or for-profit corporation may do.

A nonprofit operates like a regular corporation. It has directors (often called trustees) and officers. But, there are no shareholders and no stock. The profit the company earns is used to advance the nonprofit corporation’s stated purpose. The directors, officers, and employees can earn reasonable salaries.


Limited Liability Company (LLC)

 

An LLC is a type of business entity that combines several characteristics of a corporation and a partnership. As the name suggests, an LLC offers personal liability protection to its owners for company debts and liabilities. This liability protection is similar to the liability protection offered to shareholders of a corporation. An LLC also offers flexibility to its owner in that the owners can elect to be taxed either as a partnership or as a corporation and the owners can choose how the LLC will be managed. The creation of an LLC generally requires the preparation of certain documents that are filed with the The Department of Corporations for the State of Florida.
