Business cards and a website don’t make you a legitimate business. There are steps in the registration process that vary according to your industry, your business entity type, and where your business is operating. If your business is established incorrectly, it can be expensive to fix and leave you open to financial and legal liability. Do you understand the legal and tax implications of establishing your business as an LLC? A corporation? A sole proprietor? How do you register with the Secretary of State? Do you know what an EIN is and what it means to your business? Join us for this two-hour workshop facilitated by a business attorney and an accountant as they examine the pros and cons of entity types, and explain how to register your business including the necessary forms and processes. They’ll also discuss other tips on how to avoid common pitfalls before you start your new venture. There is no single perfect business entity, but being informed will help you make a better choice for your business.
