How to form a C-corporation for Beauty and Personal


If you’re considering starting a business, you may be wondering whether to incorporate your company. In this article, we’ll explain the benefits of incorporating as a C corporation and what steps to take to form one.

Determine your state of Incorporation

Choosing the right state for incorporation is essential to your business’s success. You’ll want to consider several factors, including where you’re based and where your business is located. If neither of those places has favorable incorporation laws, then you might want to choose a different state entirely.

Your choice should also take into account what friends or family members live there—after all, these people may be able to help you with your new enterprise when it comes time for legal or financial matters. However, don’t let them influence your decision too much; their expertise is not necessarily relevant in all cases!

Decide on the name of your corporation

After getting approval from your state, it’s time to choose a name for your corporation. You’ll need to use a name that is not already in use and is not too long. Additionally, some states will restrict the names of corporations that sound like government agencies.

Finally, make sure your name isn’t hard to remember—because customers are going to ask what it is!

File Articles of incorporation

The first step to forming a C-corporation for beauty and personal is to file articles of incorporation with the appropriate state agency. This can be done online, by mail, or in person. The time it takes for your paperwork to be processed varies depending on where you live and how quickly they process filings.

The next step in forming a C-corporation for beauty and personal is determining how much money you’ll need to pay as an initial capitalization fee. This amount depends on what type of corporation you want: S or C. For example, if you choose an S corporation form instead of a C corporation form, then there is no limitation on shareholders’ liability but profits are taxed twice since profits pass through directly from the business entity onto its owners’ tax forms as well as being taxed at both corporate income tax rates (which vary by state) plus any applicable personal income taxes due from shareholders who receive those profits when they distribute them in dividends during subsequent years.

Hold an Organizational meeting with shareholders

At that meeting, you’ll decide on the name of your corporation and identify its initial directors. You’ll also set up a date for the first official shareholder meeting and elect officers for the corporation. After holding this organizational meeting—and any subsequent meetings as needed—you should keep detailed minutes so that everyone who was involved in decisions can refer back to them later on.

In addition to adopting bylaws, setting up elections procedures, naming officers, and issuing shares (if applicable), it’s also important that you put together some form of recordkeeping system so things don’t get lost in all those folders!

Prepare the corporate bylaws and stock certificates

Corporate bylaws are rules that govern the operations of your business. They must be in writing, and they should be adopted by your board of directors or shareholders. You can get help from a lawyer to draft these documents, but it’s also possible to do it on your own using resources. Stock certificates are a set of certificates that represent ownership interests in the corporation. The certificate must include certain information about your company: its name and address; the number and class of shares; whether those shares have been authorized but unissued or issued; when they were issued; who holds them currently (the owner); whether there are any restrictions on transferring them, whether dividends have been declared yet; what voting rights each share has—and so on.

Apply for an EIN from the IRS

  • The EIN is a 9-digit number that you’ll need to file your taxes, open a bank account, etc.
  • To apply for an EIN, visit the IRS website. It will take about 20 minutes to complete the application and it only costs $50 if you qualify for a fee waiver.

Buy a general liability insurance policy

Your insurer will cover you in case someone is harmed while using your products or services, or if they get sick because of them.

  • The right amount of coverage: You’ll need the right amount of coverage based on how much money you have at stake and what kind of liability risks you face. For example, if your company sells expensive beauty products that could cause an allergic reaction in people who use them, then it may be wise to purchase extra protection against product liability claims through an extra rider with your basic insurance policy.
  • The right period: Make sure you have appropriate coverage for the type of C-corporation status that best suits your business model (for example, S-corporation). It’s also important to note how long each type remains active after incorporation—some states require C-corporations to renew their charters every year; others allow them to operate indefinitely as long as annual reports are filed with state authorities each year by certain deadlines.
  • The correct type: You want something flexible enough so that when things change down the road—or even just because there’s been some sort of mix-up during incorporation—you can take advantage of different options without having invested too much time into one particular option initially.”

Make sure you have great legal advice every step of the way

We can’t stress enough how important it is to have a lawyer on your team. You’ll need someone who knows the ins and outs of forming a corporation: what a charter is, and why you need one; how to file articles of incorporation with the secretary of state; what kind of paperwork you should expect from them; and so on.

Your attorney should also be able to help guide you through any legal issues that arise later in your business, such as disputes between shareholders or if there’s ever an issue with creditors or vendors.


That’s it! Now that you have your C-corporation, you can get started on your business. You’ll need to make sure you have the right supplies for your salon or spa, and remember to file taxes every year.
