Why Do Vendors Incorporate in Delaware?

If you’ve done much due diligence work, you’ve certainly noticed that many vendors incorporate here in Delaware (well, technically, I live in southeastern Pennsylvania but have worked for most of the past quarter century in Delaware). Have you ever wondered why? Hint: It’s not just because of the beautiful scenery and cycling friendly roads. 

Benefits of Incorporating In Delaware 

Delaware is home to over half of the Fortune 500 companies. For large businesses, Delaware holds many advantages, but smaller businesses may not find it as beneficial. And here's a list, with the help of, of why:

  1. The state features no sales tax and a relatively low cost of living compared to its neighboring states.  
  2. Delaware’s business law is one of the most flexible in the country. 
  3. The Delaware Court of Chancery focuses solely on business law and uses judges instead of juries. 
  4. For corporations, there is no state corporate income tax for companies that are formed in Delaware but do not transact business there (but there is a franchise tax). 
  5. Taxation requirements are often favorable to companies with complex capitalization structures and/or a large number of authorized shares of stock. 
  6. There is no personal income tax for non-residents. 
  7. Shareholders, directors and officers of a corporation or members or managers of an LLC don’t need to be Delaware residents. 
  8. Stock shares owned by persons outside Delaware are not subject to Delaware taxes. 

Typically the court system is not a primary factor when choosing where to form a business, but Delaware deserves a special mention. The Delaware Court of Chancery is often considered an advantageous venue for shareholder lawsuits. It hears only business cases and uses only judges, no juries. For large corporations with thousands or hundreds of thousands of shareholders, this can be a big plus.  

So there you have it – The First State is also the leader in business friendly states.
