What is the advantage of a California Professional Corporation for a healthcare business, medical practice or professional practice in San Diego? Why is a California PC a better legal entity than an LLC, S-Corporation or C-Corporation? California has specifically established the Professional Corporation or PC for those with advanced licensing and degrees in California such as:
- Doctors, Physicians and MD’s
- Dentistry Practices
- Attorneys and Lawyers
- Certified Public Accountants
The California Professional Corporation or PC provides additional protections for shareholders as well as expanded deductions and financial advantages. The first protection of a PC is the separation of liability between shareholders of the Professional Corporation. Each shareholder is held separate and not liable for malpractice or negligence and the associated liabilities caused by another shareholder in the PC.
The California Professional Corporation for a healthcare business allows physicians and licensed professionals to make increased retirement contributions to the company 401(k) when compared to other corporate entities. Under the structure of a California PC, healthcare professionals are able to take advantage of additional tax deductions for a variety of benefits including health insurance, malpractice insurance, disability, life insurance and dependent care.
