All About Public Benefit LLCs

With the rise of public consciousness regarding sustainability and corporate responsibility, more business owners are looking for ways to further their mission and business with an eye for the future. The state of Delaware has long been a leader in corporate governance so it’s no surprise that they’ve adapted to the times by adding an entity type to meet the needs of the modern business owner.

S-Corp vs. LLC - Which is Right for Your Business?

New business owners often struggle to determine if forming an LLC or incorporating is the right option for them.

What to Do After You Start Your LLC

This is part five of our series, Start an LLC with Me. So far, we’ve started a Delaware LLC, gotten an EIN number, opened a business bank account, and gotten a business license.

For many business owners, all the official parts of the setup process are complete! These days it’s common to have a website and social media accounts for a business before it’s official. You may have already set up a few of these things (my partner and I had before we officially started our LLC).

Let’s look at some of the most important unofficial parts of setting up your business.

This is the fourth post in our series Start an LLC with Me. In our first post, readers came along as I officially formed an LLC. I then got an EIN number (and shared step-by-step instructions) and opened a business bank account. Next up: getting a business license.

Business licensing is probably the least straightforward of the steps to opening a business. This is because business licensing varies greatly by location. In some jurisdictions or industries, you may not need a business license at all. In others, you may need one at the federal, state, county, and city level.

If you recall from our first post of the series, my friend and I started a small business that began to make money. My accountant advised us to form an LLC for tax purposes.

Today we’re beginning a series to walk new business owners through all the initial steps to form a Delaware LLC and get their business up and running.

Like many people, the pandemic has given me time to explore my strengths and hobbies from home. A fun side project I was doing with a friend has begun to make money and my accountant advised us to start an LLC.

Why It’s Important to Select the Right Registered Agent

Selecting a registered agent may feel like a daunting task. With so many service providers available, it may feel like who you select doesn't really matter. But registered agents provide a critical business service and it's important that you select a registered agent who is ready to be your partner in entity management.
