S Corp or LLC ? - Posted by Dee Jay

I currently have an S corp that I have used for my computer business transactions. I am new to REI and I want to use my S corp., however I am reading that an LLC is better.

Can I still have protection using my “S” corp?
What is the difference?

Can anyone please advise?

In most cases, holding rental properties is better suited for an LLC, and flipping properties is better in a corporation. The expense factor is relevant, since LLC requires publication, which can cost several hundred dollars in NY. I would review your particular issues with a CPA or accountant, but suffice it to say, using your S corp for now may be fine. You can file a “trade name” for the corporation for doing the real estate activities.
