How to form a C-corporation for Appliances


The process of forming a corporation is not difficult, but it does require that you follow the proper steps. If you want to form a corporation, you have to first decide if it’s right for your business and then determine whether it’s the best way to structure your business. A corporation lets you establish yourself as a separate legal entity from the owners of your company—and protect yourself from liability for any debts or obligations incurred by the company. They also offer tax advantages that can help smooth out some of the ups and downs associated with running an appliance-related business.

Incorporating is the process of formulating a corporation

While it can be done on your own, you may want to consider hiring an attorney to help with this if it’s your first time.

The main benefit of incorporating is that it creates a separate legal entity under which you can operate your business and sell products or services. In contrast, sole proprietorships are considered to be “pass-through entities” because they are not taxed separately from their owners, and profits are reported as personal income on their personal tax returns.

A corporation is formed by filing articles of incorporation with the state

The articles are a public record, so you can’t hide your business’s ownership information.

Once the corporation has been formed, you’ll need to get an Employer Identification Number (EIN), which is an employer tax identification number assigned by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

When a company incorporates, it becomes its own legal entity, distinct from the owners

Incorporation is a legal process that creates the corporation and allows it to conduct business as a separate (and protected) entity. Your corporation will have its own tax ID number and can open up bank accounts in its name. It can also enter contracts and handle payroll independently of any one person’s personal credit or assets. When you form a corporation, you’re creating an “artificial being” with rights of its own that exist apart from those of its owners—but this doesn’t mean that your business will be completely independent!

Corporations have to pay taxes on any profits they earn

A corporation’s tax burden is determined by its “corporate rate,” which is 20 percent for all corporations. This means that if a corporation earns $100 in profit, it will be taxed at 20 percent—for a total tax bill of $20.

However, not all of the money you earn from your business is considered taxable income. A C-corporations can deduct many different expenses from their taxable income before paying taxes on the remaining amount (called net income). These deductions are called cost recovery or depreciation deductions.

Limited liability companies are similar to corporations in most states

  • LLCs are formed by filing articles of organization with the state.
  • LLCs are considered separate legal entities from the owners.
  • LLCs offer limited liability protection for owners that may be held liable for debts or claims against their company.
  • The LLC will pay taxes on any profits it earns and may also have to pay self-employment tax if there is more than one owner involved in the business

Protection from Personal Liability

The most significant advantage of a corporation is limited liability. A corporation is considered a separate legal entity, so when you incorporate an appliance business, you’re not personally liable for any debts or obligations that your company incurs. If something goes wrong with the business—such as a customer lawsuit—the creditor can only go after the assets of your company, not your personal assets like your home, car, or bank account.

Because corporations have their own tax requirements, they must pay taxes on profits earned through their business activity. Typically this means paying an income tax at both state and federal levels. In addition to paying income taxes, corporations typically must also file annual reports and may have to pay registration fees in the state where they’re headquartered (or another state). If you want additional protection from lawsuits related directly to your personal assets (rather than those relating specifically to running an appliance business), consider forming an LLC instead of incorporating it as a C-corporation or S-corporation.


As with most business decisions, forming a corporation is about weighing the pros and cons. The biggest advantage of incorporating is that it provides some risk protection for your personal assets. But corporations also have to pay taxes on their profits—and if you’re not careful, this could end up costing more than you would have paid in personal income tax as an individual. You should consider all of these factors before deciding whether or not to incorporate your appliance business. Once decided hit up top our website and feel relaxed like never before!
