I live in NYS. Should I incorporate here or are there better states to incorporate in and if so where? Can I get vendor accounts without being incorporated yet? I have a financial consulting business. What structure should I use? I am the only employee. Thanks in advance.

Hi, Vixen!! I am also in NYS. I chose to inc in Nevada, but that might not be for everybody. There are some other states that are very friendly to businesses, but unfortunately, NY isn't really one of them. I'm sure that someone will be along to chime in with some other suggestions. You might try talking to someone at a college law clinic about this. Their services are usually free. In my area, many accountants will give you a free consultation.

I just incorporated in Nevada.... I Incorporated as an "S" Corp... the CPA that I spoke with said that it would be a better 'Tax' route to go with an "S" Corp rather than a C Corp or an LLC.

 

I live in Texas... and thankfully only had to pay $205.00 for the filing fees and license in Nevada. Texas would have royally wasted me on filing fees :cry2:

I have been reading this thread but have a few questions that effect my particular situation.

 

Any suggestions on reputable attorneys or accountants with expereience setting up multiple corporations?

 

I am starting two totally different types of businesses and want to keep them seperate.

 

I was thinking of setting up one main corp and then having sub corps or llc's under it for each business.

 

Not really sure though.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi I am new to the board after beening in lurker mode for a while.

 

On the matter of incorporating. It is best to incorporate in the state that you live in.

 

I was told by my CPA that if i incorporate in Deleware but I do my business in Georiga then I am opening myself to being double taxed by both Deleware and Georiga.

 

However, I wish I live in Florida because they dont have a state income tax only federal tax!!!

 

If I am wrong please let me know.......

Deaf CEO,

 

Florida doesn't have a personal income tax, but does have business tax returns that are required. It all depends on how the business is setup.

 

Here's some info from the Florida Dept of Revenue

Take care,

Somebody tell me how to get a phone out of state to ring through to a cell "cheap"

 

Vonage - http://www.vonage.com

 

Set up a remote number in whatever city they support, then call forward that number to your cell phone.

 

:-)

 

It might not be the absolute cheapest route, but it's quick and efficient - you could have a number up and running in less than an hour.

For # 20 about aged LLC's. Unless you have legal problems and need to say "my assets were in the corporation before it all happened" there is no need for an aged one I think. Have you been asked how long you are in business on an application? Not me!

Hello Gromit and others, saw your comment concerning checking accounts. My guy told me how that he does this with no pg . Here we go when you go to the bank when you are asked what type of account you want you tell them it is an unincorporated association or trust. If you have an LLC just leave that off and put the name. Now every account needs a person for the signature card. That is who signs. It is not a guarantor. You put your name and to the side put "agent" "Authorized Representative" some title to keep you at arms length of the corp. you don't want to be associated with it.
