Why Should I Incorporate My Business

With so many people leaving the corporate world to go out on their own, many of them ask “why should I incorporate my business?” The costs associated with incorporation or LLC might make it seem like you need to be highly successful before considering taking this important step. Sometimes learning from other’s experience can be important when making these types of decisions.

One important consideration is the cash flow of the business. Once a business is netting greater than $60,000, incorporation makes a great deal of sense. One benefit of incorporation is tax savings. The tax savings are significant and some business owners will see a 50% reduction in their tax liability. Some of the savings are in self-employment taxes that business owners pay.
