Incorporate business in U.S.
Adhering to the Formalities of Operating a CorporationOperating a corporation involves much more than just registering to add "corporation" to the end of your business name, and then doing business as usual. The liability protections, tax status and other provisions that are granted to your company through the act of incorporation can be challenged in court during a legal action, or can be stripped by the government, if you cannot prove that you have strictly followed the operations bylaws that were implemented when you incorporated your company.
Here is an overview of bylaws procedures that must be practiced and recorded to document the operations of your corporation. Review the exact bylaws that were voted on for your own corporation to make sure that there are no additional, or different, formalities that you must follow in order to bring your operations into compliance.
By operating a corporation with adherence to these simple formalities, you can protect your business from any future legal challenge intent on piercing the corporate veil to make you, the owner, directly responsible for liability. Attending to these simple rules is a small price to pay to keep that protection intact.
