Starting A Business Checklist
1.) Create a Limited Liability Company (L.L.C.)
Setting up an LLC is the first step in creating a business that is an entity separate from yourself.
This offers you a layer of protection between your business and personal finances.
2.) File For Federal Tax ID Number (EIN)
Now that you have an LLC, you will need an EIN number to identify yourself to the government for taxes and other purposes.
3.) Draft An Operating Agreement
This boilerplate document outlines who owns what percentage of a company, and shows how current members can leave and now members can join.
All LLC Organizers sign and date this agreement once they are content with the terms.
Banks will often require this document to open an account.
4.) File For Applicable County/State Licenses
Most counties will require a Business License to operate.
If you are selling physical goods (as opposed to delivering a service) you will also need a Merchant License/State Sales Tax License.
5.) Set Up Business Bank Accounts
The purpose of an LLC is to show that your business is a separate entity.
You need separate business bank accounts for your business’s money.
Personal funds should never intermingle with the business account and vice versa.
6.) Business Accounting 101
At the end of the year, you will have to pay your business taxes.
Tracking as you go will make things much easier than trying to think back at year-end.
You will need a reliable way to track income and expenses.
