Company Registration and Incorporation

Incorporation offers several benefits such as:
1. Limited liability protection for owners
2. Ability to raise capital through selling stocks
3. Perpetual existence, meaning the company can continue to operate even if owners change
4. Separate tax treatment from owners
5. Increased credibility with customers, suppliers and investors.

Business Name Search

A business name search is the process of checking if a proposed business name is available for use and if it complies with the relevant regulations. The purpose of a business name search is to ensure that the chosen name is not already being used by another business and to avoid any legal issues that may arise from using a name that is already registered. This process typically involves searching state databases, trademarks, and domain names to determine the availability of the desired name.

Certification of Business Documents

Certification of business documents refers to the process of validating a business document. This is typically done by a third-party authority or government agency to verify the document's validity and legality. Certification may be required for various types of business documents, including contracts, agreements, certificates of incorporation, and other legal or financial documents.

Business Types

Business Types in Liberia

Sole Proprietorships

A sole proprietor is someone who owns an unincorporated business by himself or herself. However, if you are the sole member of a domestic limited liability company (LLC), you are not a sole proprietor if you elect to treat the LLC as a corporation.


A partnership is the relationship between two or more people to do trade or business. Each person contributes money, property, labor or skill, and shares in the profits and losses of the business.


In forming a corporation, prospective shareholders exchange money, property, or both, for the corporation's capital stock. A corporation generally takes the same deductions as a sole proprietorship to figure its taxable income.

S Corporations

S corporations are corporations that elect to pass corporate income, losses, deductions, and credits through to their shareholders for federal tax purposes. Shareholders of S corporations report the flow-through of income and losses on their personal tax returns and are assessed tax at their individual income tax rates.

Limited Liability Company (LLC)

A Limited Liability Company (LLC) is a business structure allowed by state statute. Each state may use different regulations, you should check with your state if you are interested in starting a Limited Liability Company.
