LLC vs C Corporation: The Ultimate Guide For Your Business

This article is published in full as a guest post on one of our partner's blogs here: https://www.unstack.com/blog/llc-vs-c-corp

Here is doola's recommendation on the key factors you should consider regarding whether an LLC or C Corporation is the best choice for you:

  • If you are looking for liability protection and flexibility (limited admin upkeep, tax flexibility) an LLC is a great choice for new businesses. LLCs are considered easier to start and maintain.
  • If you are currently raising or will need to raise US venture capital, and take a company public a C Corporation is a great choice. US investors require a C Corporation to invest venture capital.
  • At the end of the day: it's your business, your choice!
