Getting Started with a new corporation…

Getting Started with a new corporation…

We will take a break from looking at different types of organizations to take a look at the mechanics of creating a new corporation.  Since there have been many requirements added since 9/11, including those added by the Homeland Security Agency and Dodd-Frank requirements, many items are now required that were not required previously before people will accept that you have a “real” organization.


Here is a simplified step by step creation list for people, at least in the Great State of Texas:
  1. Incorporate – file your articles of incorporation with the domiciled state
  2. By Laws – Write them
  3. Incorporation meeting of the board of directors – minutes to adopt articles of incorporation, By Laws, appoint officers
  4. Issue stock certificates – must create a stock ledger
  5. Create a corporate binder
  6. Entity Identification Number (EIN) with the U.S. I.R.S.
  7. Create a Dun & Bradstreet Number (D.U.N.S.)
  8. Get an Internet domain name
  9. Create a website and associate the Internet domain with the website
