Work Step by Step
1. A corporation may purchase the assets (land, building) or borrow funds in its own name. In other words, it can be said that the corporation can act like any other human being, except that it cannot be seen or touched. 2. As the corporation is a separate legal entity, its creditors can recover their dues from the corporation only, and cannot make the owners personally liable for it. 3. Stockholder may transfer his interest partly or fully, by selling their stock. It does not require approval of the corporation or from the other stockholders.
