In-Depth Incorporation FAQ

In which state should I incorporate?

When you choose to incorporate, you will need also to choose a state to incorporate in. The choice is an important one, as the state of incorporation will be the company's legal home. However, the legal home is not necessarily the company's physical home. States do not require that a business incorporated under its laws maintain an office within the state. A company can operate and carry on all of its business in a state other than its state of incorporation. This opens a wide range of options of states in which to incorporate, but for most businesses the choice usually boils down to the State of Operation, Delaware, or Nevada.
