Canadian Business Lawyers - Benefits of Incorporating• Personal Liability Protection;
This is the number one reason why many people incorporate. In case of a lawsuit or judgment against your business, no one can seize your personal assets unless you have pledged these as collateral. There are other liabilities which you will not be able to avoid by incorporating. For example, if you do not remit certain taxes, you could be held liable as a director or officer of the company.• Potential Tax Advantages;
There are more tax options available to corporations than there are to proprietorships or partnerships. You can establish various pension, profit-sharing and stock option plans which are favorable to the owners of the corporation. For example, in most cases, a corporation can deduct your life and health insurance premiums whereas you could not do this personally. You can also pay salaries to family members thereby reducing your family's overall tax burden.
Incorporation also provides the following advantages:• Flexibility in Personal Financial Planning; • Greater Control in Transferring Ownership; • Easier to Bring in Outside Investors and Other Partners; • A Company Survives Human Death.
