Forming a corporation A corporation is a legal entity that has separate legal existence from its shareholders and directors. It is sometimes also referred to as a limited company. Since it has a separate legal existence from its shareholders and directors, they are generally not personally liable for the debts of the corporation beyond the amount contributed. Although it is the shareholders which own a corporation, it is the directors who manage the day-to-day operations. What are the advantages of incorporating? -

Incorporating limits the liability of corporation shareholders. Generally, a shareholder of a corporation is only liable to the extent of his/her investment in the corporation. The Liability of Directors page contains more information.
