What are the Advantages of an S Corporation?

Limited Personal Liability

This limits the liability of the owners/investors to only the amount of their investment. The owners of a corporation are not personally liable for business debts, claims, or other liabilities.

  • Perpetual Existence

The existence of a corporation is considered perpetual, although it can be terminated voluntarily by its owners (shareholders).

  • Better fringe benefits

While all business entities can provide fringe benefits to its owners and/or employees, the C Corporation allows for a greater range of benefits.

  • Pass-Through Taxation

The S Corporation does not have a separate tax status from its owners (shareholders). Instead, the income is allocated to the personal income proportional to his or her ownership interest.
