IF YOU ALREADY HAVE AN LLC THAT IS FINE.
Register an Official Business Entity for your Business. There are (3) Entities to choose from, C-Corp, S-Corp or LLC.
The best entity for you will vary, if you are unsure go with LLC as it is the most versatile. If you have a CPA consult him.
I also recommend filing with INCFILE as its free and you only pay state fees, it also comes with (1) year of free registered agent if desired
(out of state incorporation).
If you file in your state you are the registered agent.
If you want to file in another state because of tax advantages you may do so and will take the free registered agent for (1) year.
***KEEP IN MIND***
90% of business bank accounts must be opened in person, for this reason it is MUCH easier to set up your corporation in your state. If you want to leverage tax advantages: Set up your holding/funding corp in your state, set up your operating corporation in another state.
ENSURE You use the Address, Phone Number and E-mail that we’ve acquired up until now throughout the whole application.
Don’t Pay for Anything Except State Fees.
**BE CAREFUL NOT TO CLAIM A HIGH RISK BUSINESS**
When choosing the Entity’s name and SIC Code, keep it neutral. If you choose a risky name or SIC code, you will be auto denied later on for business credit.
- Choosing the wrong code can mean a funding denial
- A loan or a business credit card can be denied based on classification
- Some SIC codes can trigger automatic turn-downs, higher premiums, and reduce credit limits for a business.
- The business owner chooses the SIC code and must be honest about the classification.
But if more than one SIC code could apply, there is nothing wrong with choosing a SIC code which will not get an automatic denial Wink Wink*
Real Estate Investing can be Business Management or Property Management.
