Common LLC Myths

Debunking Common LLC Myths:

1️⃣ Myth: "Once registered in State A, I can do business anywhere, no problem!" False: Expanding to State B (or abroad) may require foreign qualifications, impacting name choices and more. Plan ahead!

2️⃣ Myth: "As long as Google doesn't show a conflict, I can pick any business name, right?" False: Uniqueness matters to the Secretary of State and for marketing/trademark purposes. Start with a name search, consider trademarks, and remember, it applies beyond State A.

3️⃣ Myth: "I can open a business account as soon as I pick a name." False: Wait for the Certificate of Organization and get a Federal Tax ID from the IRS. Banks need both, and possibly your LLC operating agreement. Be prepared before you go to the bank.

4️⃣ Myth: "No dedicated office, no need for a license." False: Local rules govern business licenses. Research and handle this once you secure your Certificate of Organization.
