When you incorporate a business, you evolve from a sole proprietorship (or general partnership) into a company that’s formally recognized by its state of incorporation. In other words, it becomes a legal business entity of its own — separate from the individuals who founded it. The new company structure often falls into two categories: a limited liability company (LLC), or a corporation (corp).

We’ve already noted taxation and management as two distinctions between limited liability companies (LLCs) and corporations, but there are other key differences worth highlighting, including:
