Documents required to Incorporate Your Business

by Harry CPA Accountant
In simple meanings, incorporation of any business is to add official recognition. Once you get incorporation certificate from the government, it shows you have got legal permission to run your business. Apart from the permission, you are also eligible for asking tax deductions and other facilities released by the government, time to time. It is easily understood that without incorporation certificate, you can do your business but would not be able to avail any official facility at any point of your business. Incorporate Your Business and arrange the undermentioned documents with the help of CPA. Though, once you hired a CPA, she/he will manage all the documentation and processing too. To establish any company in the USA you need undermentioned documents:-

For Business Corporation
  • Basic or Formation proof: As far as basic document of your business organization is concerned, you need a Certificate of Incorporation. In case of absence of this document, you may produce Article of Incorporation to establish your company. This certificate is self-explanatory that all your required details have been registered with official machinery. After verifying each and every credential of yours and your business partners, Incorporation certificate is issued. 

  • Documentary evidence of governing body: It is one of the mandatory requirements to have a minute or bylaws. In many cases, if you are having a shareholder agreement, it is sufficient for proceeding to Incorporate Your Business. 

  • Evidences of Ownership: You also need to have a shareholding certificate of each of the partner. This will strengthen the formation and credibility of your business organization. To Incorporate Your Business you need to produce this certificate. In case you are having a shareholding certificate of your own only, it will not suffice the purpose.

For formation of any LLC
  • Basic or Formation proof: In case of formation of LLC, you need to have Articles of Formation. In the absence of this documentary evidence, you can also use Article of Organization. In many of the states, you will find a simple difference in the generation of these documents. The core of both the documents is same with a little difference in title only.

  • Documentary evidence of governing body: You need to have Operating Agreement. This document will suffice the need at government functionaries to award incorporation. 

  • Evidence of ownership: For describing that your company is functioning with legal ways as formulated by government, you need to produce Member certificate in respect of each member of your business organization.

As far as tax is concerned, you need to produce Form No SS4 from IRS. In this form, you can apply for EIN (Employer Identification Number). In case you are from the countries, which are banned to obtain the assets in the US, mention clearly in the concerned documents to avoid any dispute at a later stage.

Though all above mentioned are mandatory requirements to Incorporate Your Business but a reliable CPA will manage these documents for establishing your business. You should work according to three different stages as described below:-

  • Stage of determination: In this stage, you should determine that what is exactly required to do by you. The budget for this segment should also be allocated accordingly.

  • Stage of planning: In this stage, you need to decide the name of your company. You will be helped out by the CPAs available.

  • Stage of action: Now you should take actions to establish your company. Ensure the formation and registration with official machinery. Also get EIN. You need to have a fresh bank account in the name of a company. Now you are on the point to transact whatever scale you need.
