1. Why should I incorporate in Delaware?
A. Delaware requires less information about the founders
of a corporation than other states and the added privacy
may be important to you. Delaware (more than 50% of
the Fortune 500 are incorporated in Delaware) is attractive
for other reasons as well. Delaware has an extremely
well established body of law, does not seek to tax income
earned in other jurisdictions, has an excellent, informed
business court in its Court of Chancery and is very
pro-business. For all these reasons, Delaware corporations
are a known commodity in business circles (particularly
banking) and are always well received .
Remember though that if you are doing business in another
state, you will probably need to register there.
