Indemnification: What is it?

Indemnification means one party agrees to pay losses incurred by another to a third party.

For example, if you were a business owner selling Widget XYZ as an original design to a retailer, and your contract with the retailer contains an indemnity clause, you, rather than the retailer, would be responsible to pay the retailer’s legal costs and expenses if the retailer is sued by a third party who claims Widget XYZ is a copy of their product.

Unlike stock options, new shares are issued by the company when the stock warrant is created.

How is a Corporation Taxed?

  • 3 min read

Corporations are the basic and traditional business entity in this and many other countries. Unless a corporation can qualify for what is called ‘pass through’ treatment by electing to be taxed under a part of the Internal Revenue Code called Subchapter S , a corporation is taxed similarly to the way an individual is taxed.
