Form a South Carolina Corporation

Thousands of business owners in South Carolina have been right where you are now—deciding whether or not to form a corporation. The primary advantage of a corporation is that its owners, known as stockholders (or shareholders), are not personally liable for the debts and liabilities of the corporation.

LegalZoom can help you form a C or S corporation for your business. With our easy 3-step process, you can set up your corporation from your home or office for as little as $99 plus state fees.

When you form your South Carolina corporation, you answer a few simple questions online. Most people complete the questionnaire in 15 minutes or less. As a first step in forming your corporation, we check South Carolina's official database to find out whether the name you want for your business is available. We then conduct a Peace of Mind Review™ and file your articles of incorporation with the South Carolina Secretary of State. Your package comes with specific bylaws tailored to the requirements of South Carolina.

Once we receive notice from the South Carolina Secretary of State that your articles of incorporation have been successfully filed, your South Carolina corporation begins its existence as a legal business entity.
