Corporations afford limited liability to its shareholder owners.
WHAT IS A CORPORATION
A corporation is a state create legal entity that has existence thru the issuance of a certificate. The corporate certificate is much like the human birth certificate. A corproation also needs an ID number. The federal EIN acts as such number and it is much like a social security a human is issued at birth.
With a certificate and a tax identification number, the corporation comes into existence as a legal entity - as oppose to a natural entity as for example a human being. A Corporation affords more liability protection than a sole owner business structure. A Corporation can live longer than a sole owner as a legal entity. Greatest benefit of an Corporation? It protects y9our personal assets!
