Corporation and Its Juridical Entity

By: Atty. Gabriel Cosh

When man began relationship with his or her comrades, he or she made it sure that whatever agreement that may be arrived at by and between them would be considered as formal and that no one would be justified in running against such pact. So serious is this goal in fact that man found every ways possible of making his or her relationship and business actions with another individual as organized.

Business organizations have been a common sight in our industrial system and economic arena today. Business organizations have actually played vital roles in the economic system that we deem efficiently run today. There are several advantages in the formation of a business organization these same advantages have actually lured many business enthusiasts in establishing several types of business organizations.

One popular example of a business organization is a corporation. Corporation establishment has been so evident in our present day. Actually, it has been fostered by the Securities and Exchange Commission because of its efficiency brought to exchanges and transactions. A corporation is one composed of several individuals, which upon compliance with all the essential requisites for its formation, already becomes an entity of its own independent from all the other people forming it. Independence meaning that a corporation is already a legal entity having all the rights and privileges as if having an existence of its own.

The importance of a corporation having such a characteristic is that it may acquire properties, file suits, enter into transactions, and have ample resources necessary for its existence. So independent in fact that an officer of a corporation acting on his official capacity as a representative of the corporation and having appropriate authority to do so, cannot be held liable for his acts because his acts are considered as that of the corporation and not his own. This same principle is true as regards the properties owned by a corporation. Any property or financial resource owned by the corporation is viewed as property solely owned by the corporation and not by the persons forming it, notwithstanding the fact that the people forming the corporation are actually the same persons who contributed the same, and vice versa of course.
