Corporate ownership (other than a non-profit) is represented by shares of stock. If you own shares, you may sell your "part of the corporation," provided it does not violate any agreement you may have with the other shareholders (including the articles and bylaws), or any fiduciary duty you may have to them (if it is a small number of shareholders). If it is a publicly held corporation, ask a securities attorney for help with any significant (reportable) sale, or if you are an insider. If the "part of the corporation" you refer to means "a subsidiary" or some capital assets of the corporation, then all of the proceeds of such a sale must go to the corporate treasury. Another answer stated that, "well if you sell the stock that you own then the money belong to you, but if the stock belongs to the corp than the money belongs to the corparation, however if your diong this to make personal money and are on the board or exec you can give you self a "bonus" for all your hard work. the bonus will be taxed as personel income so be careful"

What is the advantage of an S-corporation?

The net income of an S-Corporation are taxed to the end of the S-Corporation's fiscal year as part of the income taxes that are paid during the shareholders tax year in which the S-Corporation completes its fiscal year. This provides a benefit of avoiding the corporation "double-tax". That is, with other types of corporations, the corporation pays the taxes directly. Then, when you sell your stock in the company the increased value of the stock is taxed again. When you sell an S-Corporation stock, you are not taxed on the gain as a stockholder because the tax was already paid when the corporation reported income. The corporate tax rate is also usually higher than the highest individual tax rates. If the tax is paid through an individuals income tax, the overall tax paid as a percentage of the corporations income is lower than it would be under other types of corporations. An S-Corporation also has an added benefit when it takes a loss for the fiscal year. With other types of corporations, usually a loss results in zero tax. With an S-Corporation, the loss is passed to the shareholders who can deduct the loss from their income for individual income tax purposes, resulting in a lower tax for the individual.

What is the differnece between corporation and company?

Although the word 'company' is widely used, its meaning is imprecise and confusing. Use of 'company' should be avoided. All it really implies is that there is more than one person, and nothing else. A corporation, on the other hand, means an entity which has been incorporated. Sometimes a corporation will include the word 'company' as part of its formal name. There's nothing wrong with doing that, but the word is as meaningless as, for example, 'acme.' It's best to stick to the word 'corporation.'
