Considering forming LLC in California (home state). Will be

Considering forming LLC in California (home state). Will be bringing scape precious metal off-shore and smelting to yield gold, etc. I have already California company and hold federal and state licenses for alcohol, so I think I can pass the Patriot Act requirements (I see smelter companies requiring this beyond setting up company). I understand there is no duty or restriction on importing gold or other precious metals, but government keeps on eye on such commodities (I believe). Want to do all above board. If the scape provides valuable then I can acquire more. This may be a generous money-making business and if so, believe I need to incorporate. My current business is a simple sole proprietor, but in this venture I will have one equal partner. If I understand correctly incorporation protects against law suits, but who will sue us? We bring scape to smelter and they yield analysis and gold (or money if I choose). Anyway LLC seems the best entity. Pass through profits to my mate and I. I see everyone heading to Nevada but that means double filings and all of my work here in California. Does the above make sense? Do I need corporation and if so, then LLC?

I have an opportunity to become an export agent and

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!!
