We have been in a small propritorship bussines since 1978 and are thinking about incorporating. We do not want to lose all our property if we were to inquire more bills than the bussiness can handle. Is this enough reason to incorporate and how do we start.
Dear Penny & Charles,
Incorporate or not to incorporate is a question of limiting the liability of the business to the assets of that particular business. In that sense if your business is sued your personal assets are protected from being seized in order to satisfy a judgement in case the litigation is lost.
I would like to refer you to two of my articles on the topic of limited liability:
1) What Is Limited Liability and Why It Is Important? – here you would learn about the merits of limiting your business liability,
2) How to Avoid “Piercing the Corporate Veil” – here you would learn on how to make sure your company’s limited liability (“Corporate Veil”) is maintained correctly.
I hope that answers your question,
(a) You made a typo in the card number, CCV code, expiration date, name or address;
(b) Your card balance is too low;
(c) Issuing bank has declined this transaction for some other reason related to your account.
