Setting up the business identity is pretty straightforward. Sure there are a few loops, but some basic research will get you to where you need to be fairly quickly. No matter what “small business consultants” charge, you can definitely stand it up on your own without their “help” for no additional cost, leaving just the various fees to the government, naturally. What isn’t user friendly is local, state, and federal tax law. In a word…ouch. All I know for sure is everyone has their hand out to nickel and dime businesses at every turn. Anyway, today was the initial CPA consult, and there’s no way I’m going to steer this thing without their help. Weaving law with finance is their specialty, and in just a few minutes they cleared all sorts of fog away. We are very pleased, and it feels like we have a new teammate to turn to.
