This guide was built to help you understand the benefits of incorporating your DAO and how the process of DAO incorporation works. We help you answer questions like:
Why should I incorporate my DAO? In what geographic jurisdiction should I incorporate my DAO? What legal entity type should I choose?

If you’re not recognized as a legal entity, all of your contributors are at significant risk. If you get sued, all of your contributors’ assets could be seized. Incorporating is the best way to avoid these risks.
If you don’t have corporate personhood, your DAO can’t technically own any Intellectual Property or hire employees. Put simply, your DAO has no capacity to own assets, enter into agreements, or act as an entity in the corporate realm without incorporating first.
Without a tax entity, all your members can be held accountable for taxes on any net earnings your DAO generates. If you sell a bunch of NFTs, for example, your members would have to pay taxes on those gains, even if they never received any of the money.
