Delaware is a small state in the United States of America. Located in the mid-Atlantic area, Delaware can boast a rich history and was the first state to ratify the federal Constitution in 1787. Although Delaware has enjoyed a discrete reputation for chemical industries, the core attitude of the state is financial. From a business perspective, Delaware has a liberal incorporation law framework that favors the thriving of various types of companies. Besides, the Delaware Court of Chancery is broadly accepted as the most prominent forum concerning disputes and complex issues of corporate governance in the United States. As a result, Delaware has a stable and dependable corpus of corporate regulations that promote business with no external influence. Overall, Delaware offers strong corporate protection, allows companies to operate in almost every state and nation, and the income tax for corporations operating outside the state is equal to zero. More than one million companies, both American and foreign, are electing Delaware as their nominal domicile. Not surprisingly, the figure is increasing at a steady pace.

Types of Companies in Delaware

The rooted legal and business-friendly background is matched by competitive packages of incorporation services. Most frequent companies forms include:

  • Limited Liability Company (LLC). It is a category of a legal entity that takes advantage of features borrowed by corporations and partnerships. Typically, it has a lean structure to reduce the bureaucratic procedures and offers liability shielding to shareholders.
  • Limited Partnership (LP). It is a business entity made up of one or more general partners and one or more limited partners. General partners manage the company and are liable for all the monetary burdens. Limited partners are not accountable for debts and obligations and do not participate in the management.
  • General Corporation. It is a business company owned by the shareholders, managed by a board of directors, and run by officers. It is the typical structure where owners plan to become a public entity, stock offering, global business, or expansion policy.
  • Close Corporation. A close or closely held corporation is a business entity similar to the general corporation but owned and managed by a small circle of people. Typically, they are the shareholders, the directors, and the officers. The frame of the business can follow the structure of the partnership with regards to the general management and the dividends and benefit of the legal protection of a corporation.
  • Non-Stock Corporation. It is a legal business that does not issue shares and is owned by its members. Non-profit organizations are typical examples of non-stock corporations. While they are frequent in Delaware, they need to meet specific requirements for approval. Specific cases of for-profit companies can be granted tax exemption.
  • S Corporation. It can be either a general or a close corporation that benefits from the Subchapter S tax status, which prevents that dividends are burdened both at a corporate and individual level. This business form is a favorite pick among many domestic and small companies. As a requirement, shareholders must be U.S. Citizens.

Opening a Corporation in Delaware

The lean and flexible structure of the Delaware Limited Liability Company makes this form popular among American and foreign investors. Today, it is the prevalent type of business in Delaware.

A Delaware LLC offers many tax and legal advantages, and the steps to set up the company are straightforward.

  • The first step entails choosing a unique and available name for the Delaware LLC.
  • The formal and official incorporation occurs once the Certificate of Formation is filed and approved by the Delaware Secretary of State.
  • One crucial document is the Operating Agreement, where shares, duties, and other arrangements are clearly stated.
  • A business license is mandatory in every sector, and specific permits might be required depending on the nature of the business, as well as on local and federal norms.
  • Obtaining a Federal Tax ID is required if the corporation will work and profit in the United States.
  • Getting a Certificate of Authority to start to operate in other states besides Delaware.

It is reviewed yearly to keep a certain degree of flexibility and meet the current contingencies. The DGCL is backed by a judicial structure that stands out for impartiality and expertise in interpreting the law. As a tradition, the Court of Chancery provides written documents to justify its decisions, constituting a priceless corpus of info for corporations. Finally, the Delaware Secretary of State is an efficient entity devoted to advising companies on every issue that might arise.
