DELAWARE Corporation & LLC

There are many reasons to incorporate in the state of Delaware. A key factor as to why more than half of all Fortune 500 companies have chosen to form in Delaware can be contributed to certain departments and statutes, such as the Delaware General Corporation Law (DGCL) and the Court of Chancery. Some states require businesses to list the owners of the company. However, this is not a requirement in Delaware.

Time to set up a company

Regular filing time to form a Corporation in Delaware is approximately 3 weeks. Expedited filing is available. The expedited filing time is about 48 hours, and the fee is $115. This includes the state fee, our fee, and provides overnight service to and from the Delaware Secretary of State.

Advantages

Along with the security and support of the above-mentioned divisions, there are other advantages to incorporating in the state of Delaware. Some of these advantages are:

  • Companies that are formed in Delaware but do not conduct business within the state are not subject to state corporation income tax.
  • There is no personal income tax for Delaware business owners.
  • There are favorable tax requirements for companies that are formed in Delaware and have a considerable number of authorized shares.
  • The directors, officers, and shareholders of Delaware companies do not need to reside within the state.
  • Delaware allows single-member board of directors.

LLC, Corporation S or C

The three main types of entities formed in the state of Delaware are LLC, C Corporation and S Corporation. While the laws governing these entity types may differ, they all receive the same advantages and oversight provided by the Secretary of State Division of Corporations, DGCL, and Court of Chancery.

The main difference between LLC’s and Corporations is their structure. A Corporation is governed by Shareholders, Directors, and Officers. Shareholders are the owners of the corporation; Directors are individuals appointed by the Shareholders who oversee the operation of the corporation and act on behalf of the Shareholders; Officers are appointed by the Directors and consist of a President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. Whereas, an LLC is governed by Members. Members of LLC’s are owners, and may be an individual or a separate entity. LLC’s may also include Managers. Managers are generally elected to oversee the operations of the company, similar to Directors for Corporations. The roles and responsibilities of Members and Managers must be clearly stated in the LLC’s Operating Agreement. For LLC’s and Corporations, a single individual may hold all positions. Meaning, one person may be the Shareholder, Director, and Officers of a Corporation; and they me be the sole member of an LLC.

The second main difference between LLC’s and Corporations are their tax status. By default, a Corporation is known as a C Corporation. C Corporations are responsible to pay taxes on the business profits every year, and may choose to distribute dividends to the shareholders. If a shareholder does receive dividends, they are then responsible for paying taxes on the money received. To avoid being taxed twice, a C Corporation with less than 100 shareholders may choose to file for Subchapter S Tax Status, or S Corporation. As an S Corporation, the entity is not required to pay federal taxes; but the shareholders are then taxed based on the profits and losses of the company. LLC’s are taxed like S Corporations, making the Members and Managers liable for taxes based on the entities profits and losses.

The third significant difference between Corporations and LLC’s in Delaware is privacy. Each year Corporations in Delaware are required to file an Annual Report that lists the names and addresses of all Directors, the name and address of one Officer, and the address of the corporation’s principle place of business. In contrast, an LLC is not required to file this Annual Report. However, the Registered Agent of the LLC is required to possess the name of a Communications Contact. This may be a Member, Manager, the company’s attorney, or merely just a representative of the LLC.

Yearly requirements

Corporations formed in Delaware are required to file an Annual Report and to pay an annual Franchise Tax. The Annual Report filing fee for all domestic corporations is $50.00, while the minimum Franchise Tax is $175 for all non-exempt corporations, and our filing fee is $15, totaling $240. This is based on your corporation having issued between 1-5000 shares. If your corporation issues more than 5000 shares, the Franchise Tax amount will increase. The Annual Report and Franchise Tax are due no later than March 1st of each year.

  • Business Structure: You may state the rules in which your LLC must follow directly into the Operating Agreement, allowing you to control why and how your business does business.

  • Personal Liability: Members are not held liable for repayment of debts if the LLC fails.
