I'm interested in starting a LLC, but don't know the cost,
I'm interested in starting a LLC, but don't know the cost, timelines or requirements. I've been asked to manage [security] a vendor's site at the RNC [July 17-21] and will need to hire police officers to secure the venue 24 hours each day. I'm trying to limit my liability & provide a business entity to process independent contractor MOUs, rent equipment and process payments. I have a separate sole proprietorship [& EIN] for a related business, but this opportunity has significant risk and requires a different name/DBA. I'm a resident of Ohio, but may do business in additional states. Thank you!
Some of my consultancy clients have requested that I accept
Some of my consultancy clients have requested that I accept POs and I assume this means I need a business license (I moonlight as a consultant outside of my normal job). I'd like to get a business license, but I don't know the most advantageous state to get my license in. I live in Brooklyn, but I assume that I can incorporate in any state... Should I do it in NY, or another Tru-state area rate... Or Delaware? Thanks!
I live in Ohio and I am self employed as a sales
Hello. I live in Ohio and I am self employed as a sales broker. I set up my company as an Ohio LLC, but it is disregarded as I am the only owner. I have no employees. I did apply for an EIN number and all of my business income is on 1099s. I have been in business since 2011. I just read that I might need a business license or other registrations, but I do not sell any products. I just get paid for my services. Is there anything else I need to do to be properly set up?
I have an opportunity to become an export agent andView more business law questions
Hello,I have an opportunity to become an export agent and need advice on what I need to do to make this happen. Some backstory - I live in New York but have a family member in Russia who runs a logistics/frieght forwarding company. He has a client in Russia who needs farm machinery and parts and wants to get them from a business here in the US. So they need an export agent (me) to be a middleman and help make this all happen. Note - this is my understanding, I may be slightly wrong with the details of how this all works.My question - what licenses/requirements are necessary to become a "known shipper" and "exporter of record" in New York? Thanks in advance for any information/advice!!
