You have a piece of paper that says your Corporation or LLC is filed with the state. Congratulations! Now what? Has anyone explained what you need to do next to complete your initial paperwork?
If you are involved in a lawsuit, that single piece of paper is not enough to show that you are running a professional organization separate and distinct from you, the owner. Without this proof, you could lose everything if your business is sued.
Let Start Your Company Paperwork walk you through the first steps in building a firm foundation to preserve your corporate veil. We will discuss how to set up a minute book, what IRS forms you need to file, what state filings you will need to complete initially, when you need a DBA or fictitious business name or foreign registration and much more.
This training module also has a down-loadable attachment which provides a slide summary with space to write your notes. Refer to the Attachments on this page.
