Forming a Corporation

Forming the Right Corporate Entity in California

Some business models, such as General Partnerships and Sole Proprietorships, leave business owners open to personal liability. Forming a corporation can provide the protection you need and significantly reduce your taxes. At the Law Office of Michael A. Shann in San Diego, California, I have over 38 years of experience helping clients form corporations to protect their personal assets and reduce tax liability.

Choosing the Right Corporation

Choosing the right entity can reduce your taxes, protect your personal assets and give you peace of mind. When you contact me we will discuss your business needs and the benefits and downsides of each option. Certain corporations – such as S corporations, C corporations and professional corporations – have better tax benefits, while others offer more complete personal liability protection. I will help you choose the right entity for you and create your new corporation.

Complete Corporation

At the Law Office of Michael A. Shann, I offer a complete corporation. For a flat fee of $399.00, I will take care of all of the leg work for you, such as checking with the California Secretary of State to make sure that the name you have chosen for your business is available. I will prepare and customize everything you need for your corporation, including:

  • Name availability
  • Articles
  • Bylaws
  • Shareholder minutes
  • Director minutes
  • Corporate resolutions
  • Stock journal ledger
  • Stock certificates
  • Corporate binder book
  • Forms and instructions for future shareholders and board of directors meetings
  • Employer identification numbers (EIN) forms & instructions
  • Issue corporate stock pursuant to the California corporation codes
  • Provide forms & instructions for S Tax Election

With over 38 years of experience, I will complete the work for your corporation quickly. I understand that business owners are often very busy so the whole process of incorporation can be taken care of over the phone. The entire process takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks to complete and will be delivered to you by US Priority Mail.

Continuing Legal Services

I provide complete incorporation services. If you ever have any questions regarding your corporate formation, I will be available to answer your questions and address your concerns for free. Whether it is a day later or a year down the road, I will help you with your corporation.

For your convenience, I accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express.

Call 800-942-8669 to speak with me immediately. If I am on the phone, I’ll call you right back. If you prefer you can contact me online with any questions you may have or to schedule your free phone consultation to discuss your new or existing business. The phone consultation is free. The information is priceless.
