Corporate Compliance

The Importance of Corporate Formalities

So you've incorporated or formed your LLC, now what? Incorporating offers the power of liability protection but the only way the courts enforce that benefit is if you treat the Corporation like a Corporation. Unfortunately, people incorporate and continue to treat the company as if it's a Sole Proprietorship. Read the 10-most common mistakes business owners make in regards to corporate compliance.

When you incorporated you agreed to meet the legal requirements of corporate ownership. You agreed to follow the corporate formalities that govern the corporate structure.

Without proper Corporate Formalities, your business, your home, your personal investments, everything you incorporated to protect, could be wiped out overnight.

In the eyes of the law, it doesn't matter if you are the sole person on the board of directors, the only officer and the only employee; small closely-held Corporations are under the same legal obligations as big private companies. In fact, it is even more critical that you show separation between yourself and the company.

At Laughlin we've helped thousands of business owners maintain their corporate records. We've developed several powerful tools and numerous resources to help you maintain the liability protection your Corporation should provide.

How It Works: 

When you become a member of the Laughlin Associates Corporate Veil Protection Program you will be contacted by your assigned Corporate Coach within 24 hours. This will be your main contact person through-out the program.

The first step will be to audit your records to determine where you stand with your compliance recordkeeping. Our first goal is to get your records up-to-date if you've fallen behind.

After your records are brought current you will be contacted every month by your personalized Corporate Coach, who will monitor and make sure the actions of the company are being documented properly. You can also request documents to be produced by e-mail or on-line through your password protected digital record book.

Once a document is complete we will send you a hard copy to be signed and inserted into your corporate record book. You will have the ability to review all your corporate records on-line in your own password protected digital record book.
