Corporation vs. LLC

What Separates the LLC and the Corporation?

ALTON assists its clients in setting up Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) and Corporations. Which of the two types of companies is the best to incorporate? A general answer to this question is certainly not possible. The selection of the appropriate legal form depends on the individual start-up project or projects. To provide a basis for a good decision, for comparison, we consider here again, by comparison, the aspects of both types. On its own, those listed on the "Advantages and Disadvantages" page are provided to give entrepreneurs some of the individual characteristics.

In August 2008 we decided to establish our company ACOS Corporation in Miami. After intensive internet researches and visits of several Forums, we decided to use the service of ALTON LLC. We were convinced by the price-performance ratio. The communication was good at any time and requests were answered immediately. Gladly we can recommend ALTON LLC for future interested parties.- Andre Affeldt (Acos Corporation)
