Corporations have been around in Utah for over 100 years. They continue to be very popular.

Once filed with the State, a corporation becomes an independent legal entity capable of legally acting in its own behalf. A corporation is owned by shareholders, lead by a board of directors and managed by a President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer.

Compared to other business entities, Utah Corporations have several advantages and disadvantages. Some of the advantages are:

Corporations have some disadvantages:
