Hello all. I am new to your site but have found it very informative so far. I was wondering if someone could give me their informed opinion about whether or not I should incorporate. I am considering part time real estate investing and have no money and pretty slow credit. Nothing terrible, just alot of late pays. I thought it might be easier to build good credit quickly by incorporating and building credit under the company name. For simple corporations (type S) is the corporation’s credit affected by the shareholder(s)? Are there drawbacks on the investing side to operating as a corporation rather than as an individual? Any opinions on this are appreciated. Thanks.
