If I close my PLLC in NH, and start a new LLC in MA. I have separate EIN and registered the companies separately under each state. Also separate checking and payroll accounts. Also my vendors are separate.
What is the most important thing that I can do additionally to assure that the two entities are disassociated from each other legally in preparation of dissolution of the NH company?
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.

An individual can own multiple business entities without having the business entities being liable to the others for any reasons. The key is separation of assets. Thus, you are already doing what is needed, you are separating accounts of the two companies, you are not commingling funds of the two companies, you are not using one company to pay the bills of the other company and you are keeping separate corporate records. These are all things the courts look at in determining whether or not a company is separate or a part of another entity.

As you have separated the new LLC completely, you are now ready at any time you like to dissolve the NH LLC.
