How to form a C-corporation for Textiles


For the purposes of this article, we’ll assume you want to form a C-corporation. This is the most common type of corporation, and it offers limited liability protection, which means that your personal assets are not at risk if the business goes under. In addition to forming a corporation, you will need to establish an EIN number and get your business entity registered with the state.

Step 1: Decide on your business name

Before you start your C-corporation, you’ll need to decide on a business name. Your business name must be unique, cannot be misleading, and should not include any words that are prohibited by the Secretary of State.

Examples of acceptable names include:

  • ABC Clothing Company
  • XYZ Textiles Corp

Step 2: Choose a Registered Agent

A registered agent is someone who accepts legal documents on your behalf and forwards them to you as required by law. This can be very useful in business because it ensures that all of your mail (whether it’s from financial institutions, the IRS or any other entity) will be delivered to someone on your payroll who can handle it properly.

It’s important to choose a registered agent that is accessible, reliable, and trustworthy in order for them to serve as an ideal representative of the company in court if necessary. If you are not self-employed but rather have hired employees at your textile milling facility, then consider appointing one of these individuals as a designated contact person while they are working on their job description responsibilities.

Step 3: File the Articles of Organization

  • Filing the Articles of Organization with the Secretary of State
  • Paying the filing fee
  • What you’ll get from the Secretary of State

Step 4: Include an Operating Consent

An operating consent is a legal document that allows you to operate your C-corporation. It’s not required in all states, but it’s often helpful if you want to open bank accounts or other financial services based on the name of your company.

Here are some more details about how to obtain operating consent:

  • Contact the secretary of state in your state and ask about filing for operating consent. You will have to pay a fee for this service.
  • Once you’ve been approved by the secretary of state, submit copies of your articles of incorporation and certificate of formation (or letter from your state stating that they don’t require these documents) along with certified copies of any amendments or restatements. You’ll also need proof that everyone listed on these documents has signed them—this can be done by submitting faxes or scanned signatures via email if necessary.

Step 5: Require shareholder Approval

Because you’re a shareholder-managed corporation, the operating consent must be approved by your shareholders. This is required for any amendments to the bylaws and amendments to the articles of organization. Shareholders have to approve amendments to their operating consent as well.

Step 6: Create a shareholder Agreement

Here’s what you need to include:

  • The number of shares each shareholder owns and their percentage of ownership in the company. If a partner owns 50% of the company and another partner owns 10%, then they should have no more than 60% between them (50% + 10% = 60%).
  • How much money each partner invested into starting the business and how much value did they add to it? This will help protect your interests as an owner if one partner leaves or quits working on the project, but still wants a share in profits.
  • How much profit you expect from this venture over time, will also help determine how much money is owed to each investor upon dissolution or sale of all assets at closeout value.
  • Whether any outstanding debts must be paid off distributions are made, such as taxes or loans taken out during the start-up phase.

You need to consider several details in addition to selecting a name and obtaining any mandatory business permits and licenses because what you do now can affect your business later on

The first thing you need to decide is whether your corporation will be a C-corporation or an S-corporation. You may want to consult with a tax professional or attorney before making this decision so that you fully understand the implications of each type of corporation.

Your next step involves forming a board of directors, who will oversee all aspects of running the business. This could include creating bylaws that outline how meetings should be conducted, what happens if someone misses meetings or fails to attend them properly,  how votes are counted, etc., as well as deciding who gets appointed to which roles within the board.


Once you’ve formed your company, it’s important to keep proper records of all of your business transactions. These will be crucial if you ever need to file taxes or seek legal representation in the future. As we mentioned earlier, it’s also important to protect yourself legally—and legally protect your business—by creating a shareholder agreement that dictates how decisions within your corporation must be made.
