Corporation

A corporation is a distinct legal entity created under state laws which can open a bank account, purchase property, enter into contracts and operate a business. One of the most important features of a corporation is that generally, its owners are not personally liable for the debts of the corporation.


The corporate business structure also saves you money in taxes, provides greater business flexibility and makes it easier to seek outside investment
