  • Q: Why does incorporating my business protect my personal assets that are not in the business

    Show answerHide answer

    A: Incorporating a business and acting appropriately to allow anyone who deals with your business to know that it is incorporated will protect you from personal liability and therefore protect your personal assets. The key to shielding your personal liability however is to make sure that everyone you deal with knows that you’re acting on behalf of the corporation, which is a separate entity. This means that your signs, invoices, purchase orders and cheques should clearly indicate the name of your corporation. If your business is using a different name then you should properly register it. You also must be careful not to guarantee debts or liabilities of the business.
