Overview of Corporations

The chief purpose of a corporation is to insulate the owner's personal assets (or the assets of other businesses) from the debts of the business. You can achieve this same objective with a limited liability company (LLC). But unlike the LLC, the corporation is a poor entity to protect personal assets. The two major drawbacks from using the corporation as a personal asset protector are:

  1. assets you transfer to and from the corporation create various consequences, and
  2. your personal creditors can seize whatever shares you own in the corporation - as well as obligations due to you from the corporation

The limited liability company (LLC) and limited partnership (LP) overcome these corporate disadvantages. They thus play a more important role in personal asset protection planning.


You may think that your wealth is safe and that you don't need protection. But don't delude yourself and accept reality -  for every 60 minutes you spend making money, spend 60 seconds thinking about how to protect it!
