Please be advised that incorporating one's business can be an effective legal structure, nevertheless there are significant demands and responsibilites associated with an incorporated company, with taxes, creditors and third-party liability being high on the list, and should not be underestimated (in addition to the limitations of limited liability, in particular as it relates to signing contracts, especially when this includes guarantees or indemnifications).
