As a business owner, there are so many choices and decisions that must be made for the business - marketing, budgeting, hiring, etc. One of those decisions is: should I incorporate my business? With all the various choices and reasons, it can be a daunting task to learn and understand it completely. Lawyers, accountants, and neighbors all have their opinions on which is best - and this makes everything so much more confusing. I'll explain it from a business owner's perspective on why incorporating would be a good idea or if it's unnecessary. Depending on the situation, sometimes incorporating isn't the best idea because it's unnecessary for the type of business or the cost effectiveness might not be worth it.
