What Is Incorporation?

If you are in the medical field and are considering forming a business or taking your business to the next level, incorporating your company may be the step you need to take. Incorporation is simply the process of turning a business, whether it is for-profit or non-profit, into a corporation, which is considered a legal entity recognized by the law. By incorporating your company, you stand to gain a number of benefits that are unavailable to companies that are not incorporated.

Benefits

When you decide to incorporate your company, there are numerous benefits that you stand to gain, including:

  • Personal asset protection – Certain assets may be safeguarded against personal claims and lawsuits.
  • Lower tax rates
  • Ability to transfer ownership – Corporations are legally allowed to be transferred to new owners and control.
  • Longevity – Because corporations have stock and shareholder groups which have evolving membership bases, the company can endure for an unlimited amount of time.
  • Credit – The credit of a corporation can stand apart from the credit rating of any owners.

In addition to the above benefits, there are several other advantages that incorporating your company can provide.
