...Partnership or Corporation 1. What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of Thomas and Bryan forming a corporation? First of all, a corporation is a legal entity, created by the state, whos assets and liabilities are separate from its owners. It has some rights, duties, and powers of a person, as well as the rights to receive, own or transfer property. It is also important to mention that corporations are typically owned by many individuals and organizations who shares of the business, called stock. After this, I found some advantages or disadvantages for Thomas and Bryan if they want to form a corporation. Disadvantages: First of all, they will not be able to form a corporation in any State of the U.S. According to the law, there are some states in the U.S. that do not allow corporations owned by only two individuals. Information play an important role in any corporation, it takes a long time, as well as a lot of money to make annual reports with financial information of the office theys want to put, the flowers, and all that stuff, that is probably going to take a good part of the $10,000 of their initial contribution. Fees and formality will be some other disadvantages of turning the business into a corporation, considering that the Capital contributed was not a big amount. Finally, we cannot forget that corporations have potential double tax consequences (once when the company makes its profit, and a second time when dividends are paid to shareholders),...
