New Mexico Corporation Advantages

New Mexico Corporation Benefits
Well-Defined Business Structure New Mexico corporations have a well-established business structure and chain of command. Officers attend to the daily operations of the corporations, while the board of directors controls company-wide decisions.
New Mexico Corporate Tax New Mexico does have a corporate income tax that ranges from 4.8% to 6.6%. New Mexico corporations are also subject to a $50 annual Franchise Tax. Double taxation of corporations means that a corporation must pay tax on its profits and individual shareholders in New Mexico are subject to individual state income tax on dividends. New Mexico individual tax rates range from 1.7% to 4.9%.
Strong Asset Protection New Mexico law allows one or more persons or a domestic or foreign corporation to incorporate in New Mexico. One individual may be the director, shareholder and officer of the corporation. Forming a New Mexico corporation creates a legal entity separate from its incorporator, shareholders, officers, and directors. New Mexico corporations also have a long history of case law and provisions that provide extensive protections to shareholders, limiting their personal liabilities.
Investor Usability Incorporating your business may make it more attractive to investors. New Mexico corporations can sell stocks and shares to raise capital. Potential company investors will likely be familiar with and feel comfortable investing in a New Mexico corporation.

Your bylaws tell you how to settle shareholder disputes, how profits and losses are distributed, clarify shareholder rights, and more. We include these organizational documents, such as corporate bylaws, with every IncFast package.
