What is the difference between a Corporation and an LLC?

Corporation

  • Preferred by outside investors

    Outside investors prefer corporations because of the stricter formalities which allow investors to know how the company is run.

  • Recognized outside of the USA

    Corporations are recognized outside of the Unites States of America which allows better protection overseas.

  • Good for IPO

    If your goal is to one day have an initial public offering then a corporation is fundamental.

LLC

  • Flexible Management Structure

    LLC’s allows ease of setup and you can begin running your business. Members are managers.

  • Flexible tax reporting options

    The tax treatment is selected by its owner. An LLC can be taxed as a corporation, a partnership, or a sole proprietorship.

  • Fewer Formalities

    There is no need to hold board of directors meetings or maintain records of your business decisions.
