Does it really matter where you incorporate your business? Absolutely! You have heard the real estate term (location, location, location) and to some extent the same applies to incorporating your business. Different states have different laws that affect corporations—some, like Delaware and Nevada—have well established reputations for being pro-business. Depending on your situation it pays to do your homework when it comes to determining the best place to incorporate.

Here are the major choices to consider when selecting where to incorporate your business:

Local

The majority of small business owners simply incorporate in the state where they are physically located. It's quick, convenient and may work fine for those small companies that conduct business in one state.

Delaware

Delaware is pro-business and well known as the state of choice for companies that want to go public. Benefits include zero state corporate income tax for companies that operate outside Delaware, a special court system established solely for business disputes and very low incorporation fees.

Nevada

Nevada is rapidly gaining a reputation as a business-friendly state thanks to near complete anonymity and favorable tax treatment including

  • Zero state tax on corporate profits
  • Zero state annual franchise taxes
  • Zero state personal income tax


It's easy to see why Delaware and Nevada are two of the most popular choices when it comes to deciding where to incorporate your business. Location matters.
