S Corporation Selection

...research we have come to the conclusion the best option for Oliveology is to be an S Corporation. There are many benefits of this entity status. One of the largest benefits is no double taxation. The shareholders are only taxed at the shareholder level. Also, unlike a partnership, where all the partners are subject to self-employment tax on income from the firm, only wages earned are subject to a self-employment tax in an S corporation. In an S corporation shareholders may be employees, and the wages paid are deductible from the net income but are also subject to payroll taxes and therefore you may be inclined to pay lower wages to avoid this tax. Keep in mind though, that if you understate your wages from normal industry salaries the IRS may require you to pay higher salaries relative to the industry and position. Nevertheless, if prepared properly, this rule should only be beneficial. Another large benefit of the S Corporation status is that it stands alone separate from its shareholders. If any of you decide to leave the company for any reason, then the company can continue to run its daily business without much interruption. The shareholders receive their pro rate share of profits and pay tax based on their personal income tax rates, although actual cash distribution is irrelevant when defining your taxable income. Moreover, loses from the firm are deductible to the extent of your investment. Furthermore, if ever the firm cannot pay its debts, any creditors would......

S Coporation vs C Corporation vs Llc

...There are various business formations, some of the most notable are the S corporation, C Corporations and the LLC. While these are all different forms of businesses they do share some similarities. These similarities make it somewhat difficult to determine which kind of business that you need to form. The ultimate decision making comes from the structural differences, and operating advantages and disadvantages. An S Corporation is a corporation that elects to pass corporate income, losses, deductions, and credits through to their shareholders for federal tax purposes. Shareholders of S corporations report the flow-through of income and losses on their personal tax returns and are assessed tax at their individual income tax rates. This allows S corporations to avoid double taxation on the corporate income. S corporations are responsible for tax on certain built-in gains and passive income at the entity level. To qualify for S corporation status, the corporation must meet certain qualifications. It must be a domestic corporation, have only allowable shareholders (including individuals, certain trusts, and estates and may not include partnerships, corporations or non-resident alien shareholders), have no more than 100 shareholders, have only one class of stock and not be an ineligible corporation (i.e. certain financial institutions, insurance companies, and domestic international sales corporations). To dissolve an S Corporation there are a few steps. You must first obtain a...

S-Corporation vs Llc

...cleaning. It is to my understanding that Mr. John Smith will be the source of capital in this joint business venture. Mr. Smith, a retired man, is concerned with protection from liability for the sake of his personal assets and belongings. Taxes are not a concern as long as they are paid and protection keeps him behind some form of veil. On the other end of the spectrum, we have the younger Mr. Juan Gonzalez. Mr. Gonzalez does not have much in the way of investments nor does he have any personal assets that would be much at risk. Mr. Gonzalez is more concerned about taxes and with obtaining as much profit as possible with no minimal attention to risk, understandably so. It’s best to take these drastic views and ideologies and reach some semblance of a compromise between both parties in terms of which business entity should be agreed upon. To commence, it would be best to eliminate superfluous options from the get go. Sole proprietorship is out of the question simply because of its inherent definition. A “partnership” will also not be considered, because although it offers several tax breaks and the potential to be more easily managed, it has an unlimited amount of liability risk. If for any reason there were ever a dispute and the business were to be sued, the pursuer of the suit will be able to directly aim for the personal assets of the business owners, not just the business. This ever looming cloud would be an unnecessary burden that both Mr. Smith and Mr. Gonzalez......

C Corporations and S Corporations

...owners receive from the business). This system applies to the business S-corporation-called the "C-corporation" (C-corp) for reasons we'll see shortly-and the system of taxing first the corporation and then its owners is called the "corporate double tax." "Pass through" taxation. The entity (called a "flow-through" entity) is not taxed but its owners are each taxed (more or less) on their proportionate shares of the entity's income. The leading forms of pass through entity (further explained below) are: Partnerships, of various types. "S-corporations" (S-corps), as distinguished from C-corps. Limited liability companies (LLCs). A sole proprietorship such as John Doe Plumbing or Marcus Welby, M.D. is also considered a pass through entity even though no "organization" may be involved. The first major consideration (in this case, a tax consideration) in choosing the form of doing business is whether to choose an entity (such as a C-corp) that has two levels of tax on income or a pass through entity that has only one level (directly on the owners). Losses are directly deductible by pass through owners while C-corp losses are deducted only against profits (past or future) and don't pass through to owners. The major business consideration (as opposed to tax consideration) in choosing the form of business is limitation of liability, that is, to protect your assets from the claims of business creditors. State law grants limitation of liability to corporations (C and S-corps), LLCs,......

Corporations

...Introduction A corporation is a legal entity that is created under the laws of a state designed to establish the entity as a separate legal entity having its own privileges and liabilities distinct from those of its members. There are many different forms of corporations, most of which are used to conduct business. Early corporations were established by charter (i.e. by an ad hoc act passed by a parliament or legislature). Most jurisdictions now allow the creation of new corporations through registration. An important (but not universal) contemporary feature of a corporation is limited liability. If a corporation fails, shareholders normally only stand to lose their investment and employees will lose their jobs, but neither will be further liable for debts that remain owing to the corporation's creditors. Sole- Proprietorship A business structure in which an individual and his/her company is considered a single entity for tax and liability purposes. A sole proprietorship is a company which is not registered with the state as a limited liability company or corporation. The owner does not pay income tax separately for the company, but he/she reports business income or losses on his/her individual income tax return. The owner is inseparable from the sole proprietorship, so he/she is liable for any business debts also called proprietorship. A business can be set up in a variety of ways, ranging from a sole-proprietorship to a general partnership, an LLC to a......

...Chapter C:2 Formation of the Corporation Discussion Questions C:2-1 A new business can be conducted as a sole proprietorship, partnership, C corporation, S corporation, LLC, or LLP. Each form has tax and nontax advantages and disadvantages. See pages C:2-2 through C:2-7 for a listing of the tax advantages and disadvantages of each form. A comparison of the C corporation, S corporation, and partnership alternative business forms appears in Appendix F. pp. C:2-2 through C:2-8. C:2-2 Alice and Bill should consider forming a corporation and making an S corporation election. An S corporation election will permit the losses incurred during the first few years to be passed through to Alice and Bill and be used to offset income from other sources. The corporate form allows them limited liability. As an alternative to incorporating, Alice and Bill might consider a limited liability company that is taxed as a partnership. pp. C:2-6 through C:2-8. C:2-3 The only default tax classification for the LLC is a partnership. Because the LLC has two owners, it cannot be taxed as a sole proprietorship. The entity can elect to be taxed as a C corporation or an S corporation. If the entity makes such an election, Sec. 351 applies to the deemed corporate formation. The entity would have to make a separate election to be treated as an S corporation. pp. C:2-8 and C:2-9. C:2-4 The default tax classification for White Corporation is a C corporation.

The Collinsville plant is being sold by American Chemical Company as a condition of their purchase of Universal Paper. They are eager to sell.

How do these limits differ from those applicable to C corporations and partnerships? An S Corp. must use a calendar year as their taxable year, unless certain circumstances are approved for the S Corp. by the IRS, which may allow the S Corp. to use a tax year other than the calendar year. Using a calendar year can be a challenge for businesses that changed entity type to an S Corp, and are used to using a fiscal year. This is also contrasted from a C Corp., which can use a calendar year or a taxable year, and a partnership, which normally uses whatever the taxable year is currently used for the individual partners in the partnership. 21-26 Durrabusiness is organized as a regular C corporation in 1986.
