LLCs have simpler record-keeping rules. Corporations are stricter.
You get to decide how you're taxed—as an LLC or a corporation—for potential savings.
No, but you might want one. Forming an LLC helps protect your personal assets. It also unlocks the ability for you to open bank accounts, enter into contracts, hire employees, and get business licenses and permits.
Not all entity types are created equal, understanding the fundamental differences between each and choosing the right one for your company can alleviate future issues.
The advantages of forming a C Corp include:
(1) Raising outside funding: A Delaware C Corporation is the entity generally preferred by outside institutional investors who might be unable to invest in LLCs.
(2) Ownership: A corporation’s structure facilitates granting equity to employees, advisors, and investors.
(3) Tax treatment: For tax purposes, a corporation is a separate tax-paying entity from its owners; taxes on a C Corporation’s profits and losses are reported and paid by the corporation, but it also means more complex accounting work.
In a word, C Corp is more suitable for those who intend to raise venture capital or go public.
For most people, it’s best to form your LLC in your home state because that is where your LLC is transacting business. Even an online business is still transacting in your home state. Forming an LLC in Delaware, Nevada, or Wyoming usually ends up costing a lot more and double-taxed headaches. Two exceptions: non-US residents can choose any state. And real estate investors often form a parent LLC in Wyoming, then the Wyoming LLC owns a child LLC set up in the property state.
Non-US residents can choose any state, however, there are still some most popular states, like Delaware, Wyoming, California.
