I have a small bartending company in southern CA. I have a sole proprietorship (DBA
) under my name. We do not sell alcohol. We are just providing a service.
As the company is growing, I need help figuring out the best steps to protect the company legally.
I Need help in figuring out the following information?
- Do I need to get a LLC
since the company is growing bigger. (some have told me that I need to talk to a CPA
and others have suggested I should talk to a lawyer). I know forming a LLC is expensive and I have to pay a lot more in taxes.
- Do I need a liquor liability insurance since I'm only providing alcohol. I'm not selling alcohol since I don't have a liquor license. When I book an event, a venue will require me to submit insurance liability form. Does that mean I need to purchase liquor liability as well as general liability coverage?
- Revenue for the business
is around $25K. so far this year and I have 3 employees (they are private contractors). What steps do I need to take so I wouldn't get sued by them if something were to go wrong.
- I have more questions once I get the right lawyer to help.
Thank you for your time reading this.
