The four types of corporations are general corporations, C corporations, S corporations and LLC (Limited Liability Companies). The General Corporation defines itself as a separate legal organization that limits the amount of personal liability and with an unlimited number of possible shareholders. A C-corporation shares many similarities with a general corporation. However, a C corporation limits the number of shareholders from 30 to 50 (in most states). This has a separate advantage and disadvantage in that there are less stakeholders to account for but the opportunities for raising capital are more limited. An S corporation has a separate tax requirement compared to a General and C corporation. In an S corporation, the income and loss of the shareholder and the company are all reported on a single tax return. This mitigates double taxation that is most commonly found in general corporations. Unlike a general corporation, the max number of shareholders for an S corporation is 75 and S corporations can only issue one stock class. Limited Liability Companies have similarities to all classes of corporations. However, it generally has less stakeholders, cannot issue stock and may have a limited life span.

The advantages of a general corporation include the protection of personal assets, the unlimited life span and the ease of transferring ownership or raising capital. Disadvantages of a general corporation include increased tax regulations, legal ramifications and federal/state regulations. A general corporation has to pay “double tax” for income generated from the company and personally (“Different Types of Corporations”, 2009).
