Customer Question
I have a corporation with...
I have a corporation with three physical therapy office. My Beverly office closed six years ago, as the lease expired and profit was not enough to renew a much higher lease. My Santa Monica office closed as rent escalated higher then profit and in Feb 15, 2015 I was able to sublease but still pay $4000 a month lease (new neuro-group wanted fair market price - therefore $4000 is the difference I will pay til Aug 2018 when lease is up). My last PT office sold Dec 1, 2014 and I stayed on as a consultant for a short time. I started doing collections Jan 2015 at my home. My former accountant retired and his replacement told me that I must have a Los Angeles City Business License, since I live in Playa del Rey. I went on line to fill out application but many questions I could not answer i.e. Are you in the health care industry? Actually, I was but now I am in collection of that business but under LA City" collection" means I collect for other people and I do not. It asks if business is done that involves another state (ins. companies are in many different states). I am not sure how to answer these questions and can I get a license that begins Jan 2015 when now it is 2016?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
