Registering your VA Business

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering if I need to create an LLC before I start my website and business cards. In other words, does the business have to be registered and legal first, before any other steps are taken?

 

Any help with these types of legal questions is greatly appreciated. :unsure:

 

Thanks so much,

Patty M

Patty,

I'm not a lawyer, I don't play one on tv, and I didn't stay at a Holiday Inn express last night, so you should consult someone who actually went to law school and passed the bar to be sure. IMHO, you don't necessarily need to create an LLC first - I will eventually form a LLC but for now I am operating under my name "dba" 25th Hour Assistants. You may need to file a DBA form with your county recorder. It's going to depend on what the laws are wherever you are.

Patty,

 

Here's a link to the Florida laws. I would read through them and then contact someone in your area if you have questions. Each city, county, and state have different laws.

 

Hope that helps.

Thanks, AmandaB. I was just looking for what most of the members were doing.

Thanks a bunch, Patty. I'm sure this will be very helpful. Hopefully, my lawyer will be 'up' on this sort of thing, as well.
