Basic Info: I have a sole proprietor business with an EIN

Basic Info:I have a sole proprietor business with an EIN number and Colorado Sales Tax License under the name of “Silent Tree Studios”.In January, I am going to form an LLC “under a different name” than I currently have for the sole proprietor business above.I want to maintain the original sole proprietor business name (Silent Tree Studios) as a dba under the NEW LLC that I'll be forming in January which will have a different name.Question: What is the best way to handle the change over of the sales tax license from the original sole proprietor business (Silent Tree Studios) to the new LLC?I don't want to have the sales tax license under Silent Tree Studios, but I want to continue using the name (as a separate entity “dba”) under the new LLC and have the new LLC be the unbrella company that pays all sales tax and income taxes with the State Of Colorado.Example XYZ Company with its own EIN is the parent company, AND Silent Tree Studios is one aspect of the business as a dba under XYZ.I don't want to close Silent Tree Studios. I still want to use the name, but I have some confusion as to what is the best way to set all of this up. For instance, what do I do with the original EIN and sales tax license of Silent Tree Studios? I don't want to have two sales tax licenses, and I don't want to have two EIN numbers.How do I transfer everything over so it is uniform with the State of Colorado?

A few years ago, I purchased season tickets for a sports team in my area. I agreed to split the tickets with a business with whom I worked and we would split the price. Both companies are in the sales biz so we use the tickets for our client entertaining. I have correspondence from them stating they 1)wanted the tix and 2) would pay to split them. However, the original company was acquired by a larger company and now I'm having difficulty getting paid. What should I do?

I have a case where a parent company holds three LLCs under

Hi,I have a case where a parent company holds three LLCs under its roof. Each LLC has a separate FEIN number and the responsible party for each LLC is the corporate parent company. Moreover, each LLC is fully owed by the parent corporation and the operating agreement also mentions that the income and expenses flow to the parent company.My question: When we file the parent corporation tax return, should we file a consolidate tax return that includes the parent corporation and the three LLCs on it?Or,Do we file spate tax returns for the parent corporation and the LLCs? (all together one 1120 and three 1065). Or, there is no need to file 1065 since each LLC is a single member LLC owed by the corporation?Could you please clarify.Thanks!

A marketing company refers customers to a parent company.

A marketing company refers customers to a parent company. The marketing company receives a referral fee for referring customers. The referral fee is a portion of the purchase price. The parent company gives the customer a rebate as a security. The marketing fee and rebate given are two separate transactions on the same purchase. The marketing company is not an agent of the parent company in the issuance of the rebate/security. The marketing company deals in referrals to become a customer. Is the marketing company required to register as a securities dealer?

I have couple websites and vanity phone numbers tied to

I have couple websites and vanity phone numbers tied to those websites. I have a S corp which is a professional services business. I want to operate the websites as part of the S corp, instead of setting up a separate companies for each of websites. For doing that do I have to register DBAs for each of the websites I am going to operate under S corp? or just mention on those websites that they are " website/vanity is operating business of --- my S corp" .What does " operating business of XXXX" mean? does it have separate entity for each operating business/website or it is just reporting to parent company for all revenue and expenses under the operating unit tab?
