Are all businesses owned by you or certain family members?In other words, is the ownership of the small businesses the same as the owner of all the businesses?
Also are the businesses set up as separate companies, corporations, or other entities, or are they all considered part of the same overall business?
My parents own one business that does custom harvest, My brother owns a small farm, my son owns a small farm, my nephew has a small harvest business and another nephew has a small trucking company. All the businesses are owned by people other than me, however I end up doing the bookkeeping for all these companies. Currently I have 5 separate workers compensation carriers and 5 separate sets of employee training, safety meetings and reporting. I was hoping it would be legal to combine all the employees under one managing company, mine, that would save a lot of work on my part. I currently have a business called English Enterprises Inc. it is a corporation that I use to operate my bookkeeping and records management under. I would like to use this company to employee all workers for all companies if it would be legal.
