  • LEAD IN: Compass Group specializes in working with small closely-held corporation and limited liability companies in keeping and maintaining their corporate records. Compass has worked with thousands of corporate owners with getting and keeping their companies in compliance. NOTE: Build up the fact that they made the right decision to incorporate or form their LLC. Corporations are powerful business tools that provide asset protection, tax savings and estate planning strategies. You want to let them know they should feel confident about their decision. You made the right choice when you incorporated. Corporations are powerful business tools that offer liability protection and tax savings. The problem is the majority of people who incorporate are never told how to run their corporations, or the fact that if they are not meeting the legal requirements they aren’t getting the liability protection a corporation can offer.
