Business FAQ

Q: What is the difference between an S-Corporation and a C-Corporation?


A: Generally, corporations start off as C-Corporations before the business owner has the option to change to an S-Corporation. The difference between the two involves taxes, and can be discussed in greater detail with a qualified business law attorney.


Q: What is the “alter-ego” or “piercing the corporate veil” theory?

A: In certain situations, courts have permitted plaintiffs to pursue the possessions of the company’s owners to fulfill a judgment against the business. This defeats the personal liability defense that business owners naturally take advantage of when the business has met its legal requirements. Some situations in which the courts may permit the plaintiff to “pierce” the defendant’s “corporate veil” include, fraud or intermingling of a business owner’s and company funds, failure to meet legal business regulations, acts in which the business can be no longer be looked as a another entity but is instead acting as the owner’s “alter ego,” and in some cases, undercapitalization.

Q: What is a registered agent?

A: Almost all states enforce the law that corporate organizations have a registered agent in the state in which they conduct business. This agent must be a physical address and presence that is available during typical business hours. No P.O. boxes are permitted to serve as a registered agent.
