The Benefits of Starting a Business in Delaware
The state of Delaware offers comprehensive, tried, and tested statutes that are designed to protect the corporation or LLC. Many larger corporations or LLCs, who have in excess of 100 members or shareholders, select Delaware as the preferred state of filing for this very reason. On the other hand, for many small business owners, unless they are seeking expansion through large stock offerings or venture capital, incorporating in Delaware is not the most cost-effective option. For these smaller business owners (those with less than 10 shareholders), incorporating in their home state is often the best choice.
