A C- Corporation is a corporation that is owned by shareholders. The corporation will have a Board of Directors responsible for making appropriate business decisions. A C- Corporation is treated as an independent entity. Owners of a C- Corporation will have limited liability, which means that they do not have any personal liability for any debts or loans that may be incurred by the corporation.


An S- Corporation is a corporation that complies with the tax requirements under Subchapter S of the Internal Revenue Code. Under that definition, a corporation that has up to 100 shareholders will enjoy all the advantages of incorporation, while also having the same tax obligations as a partnership.


More commonly known as an LLC, a limited liability company is a business organization that combines the taxation policies that apply to a partnership with the liability of a corporation. Owners of a Limited Liability Company are responsible for reporting any business profits or losses on their personal income tax returns. They also enjoy limited liability for business loans. Let an experienced Orange County business lawyer help you set up an LLC. More information about LLC Attorney in California.


A limited liability partnership is a business partnership in which the partners have restricted liability for another partner’s negligence or wrongdoing. This type of organization combines the elements of both corporations and partnerships. Let an experienced Orange County business attorney help you set up a limited liability partnership.

Sound legal advice is critical during the establishment of a business. To understand which of these types of organizational structures suit your company best, speak promptly to an Orange County business services attorney at the Citadel Law Corporation.
