This book will help you, the asset holder, business owner and entrepreneur, with an important element of your overall business protection plan: Following the corporate formalities so that your own personal assets are covered. You will find guidance on how to raise and maintain the corporate veil of protection.
The importance of a corporation’s ability to protect its owners and their personal assets from litigation cannot be overstated. If annual corporate filings and meeting minutes are not maintained in a timely or proper manner, courts can hold you, the entity’s owner, personally responsible for claims filed against the company. We call this piercing the corporate veil. This is where we step in. We will alert you to deadlines and attend to details to ensure your corporation is properly and legally maintained. (Terms and conditions apply.)
Keeping all your entity’s documents, minutes, copies of filings, etc. organized in one place is highly recommended to help protect the corporate veil. The kit contains a binder with tabs for your important documents, stock or membership certificates and the embossing seal personalized with your company’s name and date of inception.

Protect Me LLC will file the Election by a Small Business Corporation with the IRS to obtain the S Corp election. S corporations are corporations that elect to pass corporate income, losses, deductions, and credits through to their shareholders for federal tax purposes. Shareholders of S corporations report the flow-through of income and losses on their personal tax returns and are assessed tax at their individual income tax rates. This allows S corporations to avoid double taxation on the corporate income. S corporations are responsible for tax on certain built-in gains and passive income at the entity level.
Protect Me LLC will put a rush on the formation of your entity. State expedite fees are in addition to Protect Me LLCs expedite fee.
