Corporations are legal entities and are treated as an individual. Corporations are taxed at a lower tax rate than individuals. If you operate a business it may be appropriate to incorporate. One of the benefits of incorporating is limiting the liabilities of the owners. If the business is sued the owners or Shareholders are not generally liable. In certain circumstances the Officers or Directors of a Corporation may be liable for their statutory obligations such as remitting statutory deductions to the government and the like.
