The question whether a corporation empowered to engage in any lawful business may furnish professional services to its members or customers through the use of licensed agents has been a real problem for the courts. It is generally agreed that a corporation cannot furnish professional services to the public generally through or by means of employing licensed members of a profession for whose services it makes charges that go into the funds of the corporation; but it is equally well-settled that a corporation can engage in any lawful business or trade .even though practitioners are required to be licensed, provided that the corporation employs only licensed members of the trade to do the actual work.
