-Business Organization entities
-C and S Corporations
Welcome back to the MBA Working Girl Podcast-Where Business Theory and the Real World Collide! This is your host, Laura Adams.
MBA Essential Tip:
When incorporating a business in the U.S., the state where the legal formation is completed is important. Generally, the corporation should be formed either in the state where the business will be located or in another state that has a well-developed body of corporate law, such as Delaware.
Many large companies choose to incorporate in Delaware, even if they don't do business there, because it has a specialized and experienced court. This court is called the Court of Chancery; and it insures quick resolution to any corporate law disputes.
Some of the benefits to Delaware incorporation include:
-increased power of management
-more flexibility in dealing with minority shareholders
-ability to have only one director
-use of electronic proxy voting
-authorization of internet shareholder meetings
-facsimile amendments to the certificate of incorporation
