What are the Benefits of an S Corp?

Back to FAQs

When you start a new business, you must decide between many different business formations. One of these options includes an S corp, which is a designation used by the Internal Revenue Service for federal tax purposes.

The Benefits of An S Corp

If you decide to apply for an S corp, there are many advantages associated with this decision. These include some of the following:

  • The personal assets are protected by the shareholders. This means creditors cannot pursue personal assets, including real estate and bank accounts.
  • S corporations do not pay federal taxes on the corporate level.
  • Those who are a shareholder of an S corporation are allowed to be employees of the organization and retain their salaries with an employee status.
  • When interests in an S corporation change, they can easily be transferred to new ownership without adverse tax consequences.

Establishing a business as an S corporation can also help new companies enhance their credibility with their employees, potential customers, partners, and vendors.

The Application Process

To become an S corp business, you must be a domestic corporation, have only once class of stock, have no more than 100 shareholders, and not have any partnerships.
