With a growing competitive market, business owners do whatever they can to stand out from the rest. One of the best attributes a business owner can have is credibility. Customers, vendors, and even potential partners may choose to work with a company if they believe it is credible and trustworthy.
One of the ways to build instant credibility is by incorporating or forming a limited-liability company. Adding “Inc.” or “LLC” to the end of your business name implies a legitimacy that will impress your potential customers, vendors, and partners. It essentially says you’re real, you’re committed, and that you’re here for the long run.
Another way that incorporating or forming an LLC builds your credibility is that it gives your company a perpetual existence. Perpetual existence means that your entity will continue to exist even if management or ownership changes. People investing time or money in your company—especially customers—can be assured that your business is here to stay.
