How to form a C-corporation for Poultry


If you’re starting a business in the poultry industry, it’s important to know that your company’s tax status can affect many aspects of its operations. One of the most important considerations is whether or not to form a C corporation or an S corporation. In this article, we’ll go over the steps needed to start a C-corporation and explain why this type of business entity might be best for your poultry operation.

Name your company

When choosing a name for your LLC, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Be sure that the name is not already in use. If you already have a business with the same name as this one, it may be difficult for people to find your new company online.
  • Do not choose a name that is too long or complicated. You want something easy to remember so that customers can find you when they search for poultry management services on Google or other search engines.
  • Choose a name that does not offend anyone’s sensibilities, especially if you plan on working with families whose children are served by your company services. This can be tricky, but try to avoid anything too controversial just in case someone finds it objectionable.

Choose a registered agent

This is a person or company that agrees to be responsible for the corporation’s filings and legal matters. You can use a lawyer, but there are many online services that will do it for you at a lower cost. Just make sure the agent is available during business hours.

File the articles of incorporation

It is a legal document filed with the state where you will be doing business, is typically a few pages long and contains information about the company’s name and its purpose. The articles of incorporation usually have key sections that define:

  • The number of shareholders (owners) in the corporation
  • The number of shares each shareholder owns
  • Whether dividends should be paid to shareholders (owners)

Create corporate bylaws

A bylaw is a set of rules and regulations that govern the internal operations of an organization, or in this case, your corporation.

How do I create them? Take some time to think about what processes you want in place for making decisions as a group, conducting meetings, and handling other aspects of business operations before writing down the details. If you have any questions during this process, consult with an attorney or go back through our previous articles on incorporation if necessary!

Bylaws should include a few topics that most organizations should address are:

  • Corporate purpose (why were we created?)
  • Details on how managers are selected/elected/appointed (who decides?)
  • Vacation policy – how many days per year each employee gets off work

Hold a meeting for shareholders and directors

The best way to hold this meeting is in person, but it can be done over the phone or through email as well. The only requirement is that every shareholder has an opportunity to attend.

If you are using an electronic method of communication (e-mail), it’s important that all directors and shareholders participate in writing their votes down so they can be checked against signatures when needed later on in the process.

Create corporate stock certificates

When you have decided to form a C-corporation for poultry, it’s time to create corporate stock certificates. These are the legal documents that show ownership of shares in your company. You will need to issue these before selling them to investors or other people who want to be part of your business. The information on each certificate should include:

  • The name of the corporation
  • The date issued and date expired (if any)
  • A description of what type of stock is being issued (e.g., common stock), as well as how many shares exist in total and how many each certificate represents

Issue stock to each shareholder

You can also ask your accountant about any issues that might arise when issuing shares in your corporation.

You should then create a list of the shareholders, along with their addresses and Social Security numbers (or EINs). This information will be used to determine how many shares each person owns. If someone has more than one share, they can choose which type of share they want when they’re issued their certificate by the company: common or preferred, after this, each shareholder must sign a stock certificate and have it notarized by a notary public. The company will then issue the stock certificate and send it out so that each individual can hold on to them as evidence of their own in the business!


It’s important to understand that a C-corporation is not the only way you can form your business. There are other options, like an S-corporation or Limited Liability Company. However, if you expect to have more than one shareholder, we recommend going with a C-corporation because it has fewer restrictions and responsibilities than an S-corp.
