LLC vs. Corporation: Comparing Nontax Differences (Chart)

Deciding the best type of entity for your business usually comes down two choices: a corporation or an LLC. To make the right choice for you, it’s best to have a good understanding of how the differences between these two entity types impact the day-to-day operations, and possibly even the long-term success, of your closely held business.

Although you’ll need to consider your tax situation, many significant differences between a corporation and an LLC have nothing to do with tax. But, they affect things like control of the business, formalities over time, and ability to sell or transfer business interests, to name a handful.
