Why should I help my client form his or her business structure?
  • As an accountant, you are in contact with your client on a regular basis to perform a financial review annually at tax time and at fiscal year end.
  • The decision to incorporate or form an LLC is often tax driven.
  • You are often asked for advice and guidance based on your client's financial situation.

The combination of these three points places you in the middle of your client's decision-making process. At some point, you may be asked to recommend the type of business entity your client should form based on his or her tax situation. incorporate.com provides you and your client a convenient and cost effective way to form the appropriate business entity.

What is the best business entity for my clients?

Choosing the best entity for your client is typically dependent on the particular circumstances involved, such as the size and nature of the company's business, and number of owners or members and their respective rights and obligations.

Many customers find that an LLC provides them with a simpler and more flexible way to protect their assets from claims that might result from their business or real estate investment.

An LLC may have tax advantages over a corporation. For example, an LLC with one owner may not have to file a separate tax return and its profit or loss can be included in the owner's personal tax return. A corporation must file separate returns.

When is the right time in the business formation process for me to advise my clients to incorporate their business?

The timing of when to incorporate or form a limited liability company may be based on a number of factors. We find that many clients choose to incorporate when a tax situation or potential for liability demands them to incorporate or form a limited liability company.

Am I practicing law if I engage incorporate.com to create a business entity for my client?

No. Creating a corporation, forming a limited liability company or other business entity involves paperwork, but it does not necessarily require legal expertise or advice. You provide your clients with the information they need to make an informed decision about the formation of a business, for example, what type of entity to form based on their tax situation. incorporate.com handles the paperwork, including filing the documents with the state.

Incorporating businesses is not one of my core services. How do I partner with incorporate.com to be able to offer this service to my clients?

It's simple! By partnering with incorporate.com, you have the opportunity to expand your products and services that your practice offers to your clients. Through your conversations with your clients, you provide them with the information they need to make an informed decision about the formation of a business. From there, incorporate.com can handle the paperwork and filing of the documents with the state.

Many of my clients need assistance with managing the compliance aspects of their businesses. Are there any products or services that can help me ensure my clients remain compliant with regulations and applicable laws?

Compliance assistance is a major area of focus for incorporate.com. We provide each Registered Agent Service client with an easy-to-follow checklist of steps to take to help meet state compliance requirements. Our exclusive $50,000 Corporate Veil Guarantee® will reimburse up to $50,000 in legal defense fees if clients follow our checklist, complete the items on time, and their corporate veil is still pierced, resulting in a personal liability claim. We're that committed to compliance assistance, and that certain our guidance is appropriate.

Several clients have inquired about getting an Employer Identification Number (EIN). Does incorporate.com have the ability to obtain Employer Identification Numbers for my clients?

incorporate.com can secure an EIN number for your clients with a complete package selection or as an individual option. In order to secure the EIN, we will need information such as the corporation name, state, type of business, and the purpose of the business. We will prepare the forms, and send them back to you or your client. However, we do require the business owner's signature on the forms before they can be processed. The EIN number will take approximately 3-5 business days to secure, once we have received the completed forms. The EIN number will then be e-mailed to you or your client.

One of my new clients wants to incorporate or form an LLC out of state. Does incorporate.com incorporate businesses in all fifty states? What if my client is already incorporated in one state but wants to do business in a new state? Can incorporate.com register my client to conduct business in new states?

Yes. Many companies conduct business throughout the U.S. and abroad. A corporation having business locations in multiple states may form a corporation or LLC in a single state, then "qualify to do business" in other states. This means companies must formally register, file annual reports and pay annual fees to obtain authority to conduct business in those states; and benefit from the laws of the state. incorporate.com can assist your client in qualifying a corporation or LLC as well as keeping track of corporate filing requirements in any state.

In the past, my accounting practice served as the registered agent for my client's business. This got to be burdensome over time; does incorporate.com offer to serve as a registered agent on my behalf and my clients?

incorporate.com provides registered agent services in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

If we receive a lawsuit on behalf of a Registered Agent customer , we send a Notice of Service of Process with the legal document, that identifies who is suing the customer, in what court, how and when the lawsuit was served, the nature of the case, and how much time the customer has to answer the lawsuit. If the name of the company being served is similar, but not the same as our customer's, we call the customer for guidance on whether to receive or reject the suit.

In some states, annual reports and franchise tax notices are sent to a Registered Agent. If that's the case, we'll forward them to our customers in a timely manner. For an additional fee, we can even arrange an advance payment of your Delaware franchise taxes to help avoid late penalties.
