Because they can issue multiple classes of stock and have an unlimited number of owners, C Corporations are ideal for attracting venture capital and other types of equity financing - like crowdfunding. Their well-established governance rules provide peace of mind for investors, lenders, and creditors, and they can structure payroll to reduce taxes.
You must file Articles of Incorporation with the state where you’re based and designate a Registered Agent to receive official and legal documents on behalf of your business. You must also obtain an employer ID number (EIN), which is often required for tax purposes and business banking.
C Corporations need to have shareholders, directors, and officers. They must hold director and shareholder meetings, keep corporate minutes, and allow shareholders to vote on major corporate decisions. Your C Corporation also needs to file annual reports and maintain good standing in state(s) where you’re incorporated.
