Limited Personal Liability
This limits the liability of the owners/investors to only the amount of their investment. The owners of a corporation are not personally liable for business debts, claims, or other liabilities.
- Perpetual Existence
The existence of a corporation is considered perpetual, although it can be terminated voluntarily by its owners (shareholders).
- Better fringe benefits
While all business entities can provide fringe benefits to its owners and/or employees, the C Corporation allows for a greater range of benefits.
- Pass-Through Taxation
The S Corporation does not have a separate tax status from its owners (shareholders). Instead, the income is allocated to the personal income proportional to his or her ownership interest.
