Starting A Business: What Do I Need To Start My Business?

If you are planning to start a business don't forget business regulations....

  1. You are required to have a business license or home occupation permit,

  2. You are required to file and publish a DBA / fictitious business name if you use a business name different from your own personal name,

  3. You are required to have a sellers permit if you sell taxable items, and

  4. You are required to have a federal tax id if you are a corporation or you are an employer.

  5. You also are required to have a state ein employer number if you have employees.

There are advantages and disadvantages of sole proprietorship, partnership and corporation. However, if you are ready to operate your business, just go ahead and

First, file a Fictitious Business Name or Incorporate Your Business: If you do business in a business name (e.g., Carpet Express) other than your personal name (e.g., John Smith), you are required to register and publish a Fictitious Business Name, or Incorporate. You need a fictitious business name statement certificate or a corporation certificate so you can open a merchant or business bank account.

Second, get a Federal Employer Number FEIN or Federal Tax Id, What is a federal tax id number?

Third, in California, you need a State Tax Id: EIN Employer ID, if you have employee (s). So, if you don't have employees, you don't need one. Note: you must have a federal tax id before you can obtain a state tax id.

Fourth, A Resale License: same as a Seller's Permit, Sales Tax Certification, Wholesale License -- you need a sellers permit if you buy or sell wholesale or you sell retail - you don't pay taxes when buying wholesale. Example, you sell computers or clothing online in California.. you need a sellers permit to buy wholesale tax free. When you sell, you charge taxes (collect taxes) to pay to government later.

Fifth, Business License: All businesses need a business license. This is the same as business tax registration and it is not the same as a fictitious business name. Note: you need a fictitious business name to open a bank account - not a business license.
