I am trying to file an LLC
and part of the business
is massage therapy and my wife has a CA state certification. On the LLC paperwork it states an LLC may not provide "professional services," as defined by CA Corp codes section 13401(a) and 13401.3 After looking those... 13401(a) states...
13401. As used in this part:
(a) "Professional services" means any type of professional
services that may be lawfully rendered only pursuant to a license,
certification, or registration authorized by the Business and
Professions Code, the Chiropractic Act, or the Osteopathic Act.
When I look at the CA Business and Professions Code it says...
(c) "Massage therapist," "bodyworker," "bodywork therapist," or
"massage and bodywork therapist" means a person who is certified by
the California Massage Therapy Council under subdivision (c) of
Section 4601 and who administers massage for compensation.
(d) "Massage practitioner," "bodywork practitioner," or "massage
and bodywork practitioner" means a person who is certified by the
California Massage Therapy Council under subdivision (b) of Section
4601 and who administers massage for compensation.
My wife is CA certified by California Massage Therapy Council,
Does that mean she has to have a separate professional LLC? or can we use a standard LLC to offer massage and the other products we want to sell?
