The Articles of Incorporation (sometimes also referred to as the Certificate of Incorporation or the Corporate Charter) are the primary rules governing the management of a corporation.
By Incorporation one’s personal assets can be safeguarded against the claims of creditors and lawsuits. If the business is a partnership firm or one’s own proprietorship firm then we become obliged to all the liabilities of a business such as loans, accounts payable and legal judgments. In a corporation there are only stockholders, directors and officers whose liability is limited only to the amount they have invested in the business.
The Articles of Incorporation is also called as the Certificate of Incorporation or as the Corporate Charter have to be filed with the concerned state of regulatory authority.
