Why Incorporate your Business?

Taxes for Sole Proprietorship vs Corporation

As a sole proprietorship, you pay the personal tax rates on what your business earns (which increases as your income goes up). As a corporation, you pay the personal tax rates on what your company pays you, and your business pays the corporate tax rate on what it earns (which doesn’t increase as the business income goes up).

Liability Protection

The next big reason to incorporate is liability protection. If your sole proprietorship is sued, they’ll be able to go after all your personal assets (i.e., your house). If your corporation is sued, it is a separate entity, so they can only go after assets that belong to the corporation (I.e., not your house).

When Should you Incorporate?

Generally, we start to see significant tax savings when your sole proprietorship reaches $50,000 to $60,000 in gross annual revenue (before expenses). Should you wait until then? Hell no.

If you’re projecting your business to earn over $50,000 in a twelve-month period, you’re better off to incorporate right away.
