					?Talking about business incorporation is about the process of making the business as
legal entity free from its creator.Through incorporation, the business organization's
leader-be him the chief executive officer or chairman-constitutes a distinct legal entity
in the eyes of the law in operating a business. Therefore, the corporation is different in
a way that business is being perceived and also different in a way that is should be
managed.

Just how differently an incorporation of business is run depends on its features and
characteristics emerging from its legal status. Example of which includes taxation,
stock offerings, liability, transferability and diversity of the name of the business.

After the incorporation, the founders are not viewed anymore as the one conducting
the business or generating income and creating tax liabilities. Rather, it is the
corporation that does all these operations. In addition, corporations enjoy a
significantly lower tax rates than that of personal tax.

Since the corporation is directly involved in business operations, it is in itself liable
for almost all accountability, instead of the founder or the entrepreneur. In all manners
concerning liability, the corporation and the entrepreneur have legal limits, however.

Also because of the legal status accorded to a corporation, it can possess and dispose
properties by its name. It also holds true to acquisition or selling shares issued by
another person or corporation.

In instances such as death or sale of a corporation, the ownership as well as all the
assets and liabilities of the corporation is directly handed over to the entrepreneur who
purchased or acquired the corporation in whatever legal means.

One way of knowing that a business organization has been successfully incorporated
is the way the business is named-it ends with incorporated or Inc.

Therefore, the name of the business and registration number must be placed in all the
legal documents of the business such as invoice and bills, bank accounts, checks and
business contracts

It is satisfactory for an entrepreneur to see their business develop and grow aside from
looking at the present profit. Expansion of the investor's organization may prove
lucrative both on his part and the country's economy. No wonder, choosing business
locations for investments are carefully done by entrepreneurs.
