    Colorado Corporations

    Corporations have existed since before the U.S. gained independence. This longevity and the resulting stability provide great appeal. The separation of economic and voting rights provides further flexibility for those needing it. These benefits are accompanied by increased complexity however. From meetings to additional filings, such as articles of incorporation, a corporation comes with its own set of rules. We also recommend that you draft corporate bylaws, which are not applicable to LLCs. You must also learn the difference between the default Colorado corporate Taxes and Colorado S-corp taxes. For many businesses, a corporation is not necessary and we recommend an LLC instead. To learn more about which structure is right for your situation, you can visit our article detailing the differences between Link Colorado LLC and Link Colorado S-corp.

    Colorado S-Corp

    An S-Corporation is a special tax election with the IRS. It allows the Corporation's profits to flow directly onto the owner's tax returns rather than the Corporation having the file its own return. This avoids the dreaded double taxation and simplifies filings at the year end. It's important to note an LLC can be taxed as an S-Corp.

    By default, all Corporations are filed as C-Corps with the Secretary of State. To opt for the S-Corp tax election, then form 2553 must be filed with the IRS. The form is retroactive 75 days from when it's filed. For that reason, it's important to make the election as soon as possible after receiving your Articles of Incorporation. Here's our page to learn more about S Corporations in Colorado.

    Corporate Documents

    Allow us to handle the incorporation process and file your yearly reports. We will file all necessary paperwork the state and act as your registered agent In future years, we will file your periodic report and will keep you compliant.

    - Articles of Incorporation

    Your articles are the first thing to be filed with the Secretary. It brings your company into existence, provides the scope of business activities and defines the relationship between share holders. For example, a professional corporation must contain a clause limiting ownership to individuals holding the required license. The articles also list company name, principal and mailing address, registered agent, and incorporator. This information all goes into the Colorado Secretary of State's database. When you use our service to incorporate, though, we enter our information rather than yours. This protects your identity and keeps your assets from being easily found.

    - Organizational Minutes

    The first meeting held by the company ratifies the incorporation process, electors directors and handles other notable matters.

    - Corporate Bylaws

    Bylaws are the rules made by the Board of Directors. They govern the corporation, list the officers, detail shareholder meetings, record keeping procedures, stock classes, the responsibilities of owners and managers, etc. As the articles bring the company into existence, so do the bylaws govern that existence.

    - Resolutions

    One of the board's duties is to vote on and enact resolutions. These are essentially actions the board resolves to undertake. For example, our corporate package includes a resolution to open a bank account. As it sounds, it's a resolution which states the company has resolved to open a bank account.

    - Legal Assistance

    Our package is meant to provide everything you need to incorporate and open a bank account. If you require complex bylaws and articles then you should consult a corporate attorney. Seemingly simple clauses must be consistent with the whole document, along with State and Federal laws. We advise using our documents as templates to save time and money when approaching an attorney.
