Does an S Corp Make Sense for Me?

podcast tax Jan 23, 2023

If you've been scrolling through the finance side of any social media platform recently, you've likely had someone tell you to go get an S Corp. But the worst thing you can do is go get one just because someone told you to.

So how do you know when you're ready for an S Corp? I'm going to walk you through this. One of the barebones requirements for electing S Corp status is having a preexisting entity. Then you need to be asking yourself if you're profitable. Are you making at least $50,000 a year after expenses? If you do, great! Do you also have good financial hygiene? I'm talking solid bookkeeping, documentation, and keeping personal and business expenses separate. If you've got all of that, the last thing you need to do is be sure that you're current and compliant on all of your tax filings.

 

"Get inspired, but don't rely solely on the advice of others that aren't professionals. That's my advice on that."

 

What you'll hear in this episode:

  • The misconceptions about the S corp as a tax strategy.
  • Four ways to know if you’re ready for the S corp.
  • Why you need to have quality bookkeeping.
  • The one thing that can put that in jeopardy is you not respecting the boundaries.
  • If you meet all these criteria, you can unlock some serious tax savings with the S-corp.
