Can you register "ABC" DBA and then do business under "ABC design", "ABC photography" ABC..." or would you have to register all of these names separately? If you have multiple DBAs, do you also need to apply for a separate seller's permit and business licenses for each of these? Are you forced to open a separate business account under your DBA or can you still accept payments under your legal name?

Basic information: My mother and I are forming a general partnership offering bookkeeping and tax services. She is based out of San Diego, CA and I'm in Los Angeles, CA. In regards to legal, marketing, and tax docs, our main office will be in San Diego. We are already working on filing and obtaining our Federal EIN, San Diego Fictitious Business Name Statement (DBA), our San Diego Business License (taxes). My question is, since I will be working out of LA and half of our clientele will be here as well, do we have to file for a DBA and Business License in LA?

Recently, I have not been getting any customers and I don't know for how long this will continue, but I would like to pursue other avenues apart from writing research papers like helping other companies to do their business through a contract. How can I do this? I am also very good in giving advice, and can remember asking a bank to hire interns to serve the customers at the tellers, but the bank told they cannot hire an intern to become a teller.

I’m from and live in Switzerland myself and I want to incorporate in the USA, because I plan to move to the US in a few years. I plan to incorporate a C-Corporation in the state of Delaware. Now I had a few questions: 1. Do I need an EIN? We don’t plan on having any employees within the USA nor will we have an office in the USA. 2. Do I have to pay a federal income tax for my business if we actually do not have an office or staff in the USA? 3. Is there any guidance to pay the federal income tax? 4. How can I pay the federal income tax (which payment methods are accepted)? 5. How can I apply for the EIN as non US resident? 6. Does the IRS provide a contact e-mail address if I have questions or need help with my tax fillings?

She is selling for $20K, which was agreed upon by both of us. The center bills families for the previous month, instead of billing forward. Hence the tuition accrued for July is paid by August 15th. We are trying to figure out who is entitled to the tuition for August if closing is Sep. 1st. All bills are paid forward, rent, insurance, etc, so it is impairative to have the income from the previous month to pay current bills and payroll. By signing the business over to me on the first, does that give me rights to all future money received even if the debt was accrued before my ownership? There is a small profit margin, and tuition brings in about $9k a month. Not having the income from the previous month would basically mean paying a months expenses out of pocket. Should this have been included in sale price instead? Help?!

I have currently been working/studying breadboarding and my kit included a speaker. I saw that when a lever was pushed down it stopped playing any sound emitting from it and I decided, "Let's make an audio business that combines quality and design just as Bose does, but in a different fashion. We have currently been designing 3D models of prototypes. Obviously we plan to manufacture those prototypes. We have the brains and confidence, but we don't have money.

We plan to crowd fund and we need a Merchant PayPal account, but registering requires and EIN and a Tax ID. Currently we don't have any income. And PayPal requires those to have a verified account.

All the paperwork I thought i had figured out. Doing it as a sole proprietorship, but then it was recommended that I do LLC but in CA apparently they see you as a sole proprietorship anyways but will tax you as an LLC, meaning a minimum annual $800 tax and a $900 fee, something sole proprietorship doesnt have Its suppose to be a simple based at home based online e-commerce site selling giftware. But at the same time I also am wanting to consider say having one primary business name, so that if I wanted to I could say more than one sub businesses under it, For eXample a primary business name of (names just used for ex and not real) Lexie Smith's Gifts And More would be the primary name, then the sub DBA names would be like Lexie's Gifts and MOre for one and the second something like European Delights. I'm just not sure if that works.... I think I can do both the sub businesses by filing a DBA for each... just not sure if since I would be doing them as DBAs then do they each need their business license or would they fall under the business license of the primary business any suggestions/input very much welcome AlexieNichole http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/introduction/introduce-yourself/new-california-member#comments Starting & Registering a Business Wed, 01 Jan 2014 21:38:39 +0000 AlexieNichole 783821 at http://www.sba.gov/community What are the steps involved in registering my business? http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/discuss-popular-topics/starting-registering-business/what-are-steps-involved-registering-my-business <!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:WordDocument> <w:View>Normal</w:View> <w:Zoom>0</w:Zoom> <w:PunctuationKerning/> <w:ValidateAgainstSchemas/> <w:SaveIfXMLInvalid>false</w:SaveIfXMLInvalid> <w:IgnoreMixedContent>false</w:IgnoreMixedContent> <w:AlwaysShowPlaceholderText>false</w:AlwaysShowPlaceholderText> <w:Compatibility> <w:BreakWrappedTables/> <w:SnapToGridInCell/> <w:WrapTextWithPunct/> <w:UseAsianBreakRules/> <w:DontGrowAutofit/> </w:Compatibility> <w:BrowserLevel>MicrosoftInternetExplorer4</w:BrowserLevel> </w:WordDocument> </xml><![endif]--><!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:WordDocument> <w:View>Normal</w:View> <w:Zoom>0</w:Zoom> <w:PunctuationKerning/> <w:ValidateAgainstSchemas/> <w:SaveIfXMLInvalid>false</w:SaveIfXMLInvalid> <w:IgnoreMixedContent>false</w:IgnoreMixedContent> <w:AlwaysShowPlaceholderText>false</w:AlwaysShowPlaceholderText> <w:Compatibility> <w:BreakWrappedTables/> <w:SnapToGridInCell/> <w:WrapTextWithPunct/> <w:UseAsianBreakRules/> <w:DontGrowAutofit/> </w:Compatibility> <w:BrowserLevel>MicrosoftInternetExplorer4</w:BrowserLevel> </w:WordDocument> </xml><![endif]--><!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:LatentStyles DefLockedState='false' LatentStyleCount='156'> </w:LatentStyles> </xml><![endif]--><!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <w:LatentStyles DefLockedState='false' LatentStyleCount='156'> </w:LatentStyles> </xml><![endif]--><!-- /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-parent:''; margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:'Times New Roman'; mso-fareast-font-family:'Times New Roman';} p.MsoPlainText, li.MsoPlainText, div.MsoPlainText {margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:'Courier New'; mso-fareast-font-family:'Times New Roman';} @page Section1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in; mso-header-margin:.5in; mso-footer-margin:.5in; mso-paper-source:0;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} --><!-- /* Style Definitions */ p.MsoNormal, li.MsoNormal, div.MsoNormal {mso-style-parent:''; margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:12.0pt; font-family:'Times New Roman'; mso-fareast-font-family:'Times New Roman';} p.MsoPlainText, li.MsoPlainText, div.MsoPlainText {margin:0in; margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:'Courier New'; mso-fareast-font-family:'Times New Roman';} @page Section1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in; mso-header-margin:.5in; mso-footer-margin:.5in; mso-paper-source:0;} div.Section1 {page:Section1;} --><!--[if gte mso 10]> <style> /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:'Table Normal'; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:''; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:'Times New Roman'; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} </style> <![endif]--><!--[if gte mso 10]> <style> /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:'Table Normal'; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:''; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:'Times New Roman'; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} </style> <![endif]--> http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/discuss-popular-topics/starting-registering-business/what-are-steps-involved-registering-my-business#comments Starting & Registering a Business Tue, 10 Feb 2009 22:26:41 +0000 StuartR 71891 at http://www.sba.gov/community Opening a business during OPT http://www.sba.gov/community/discussion-boards/opening-business-during-opt I have decided to open a business related to my major during my post graduation OPT. I am planning on buying an existing business in the hospitality and tourism industry, and I have a few questions. I know that according to the policy it is possible if it's something related to my major. Now, my biggest question is what happens to my business once the OPT period expires? Would I have to shut it down, sell it? Is it possible to get approved for a permanent labor certification, or any of the H1B? I have done my research and I have not been able to find a reasonable answer. It does not make sense to me that a foreign national on OPT will only be allow to run a business for 12 months. Aditionaly, the idea that the foreign national can't work in its own business after the 12 months period sounds a bit crazy, what's the point of owning a business and not being able to be part of it and profit from operations. I don't qualify for E2 because of my country, I don't have $500k to get a GC, and I'm not a tech genious. I am just the entrepreneur type I would greatly appreciate if someone has any information regarding this matter.
