Make sure your name isn’t taken

Choosing a business name is an important step in the business planning process. Not only should you pick a name that reflects your brand identity, but you also need to ensure it’s properly registered and protected for the long term, and give a thought to whether it’s web-ready. Find an original, unique name that’s distinguishable from other business names. Use your state’s online database and the U.S. trademark office to ensure that the name isn’t taken.

Become Incorporated

DBA? LLC? Corporation? The Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) is responsible for the state’s regulatory environment and makes the delivery of services more efficient for consumers and business customers. LARA oversees the licensing and regulation of more than 1.2 million individuals and entities on an annual basis. Through the oversight of the department’s diverse agencies, bureaus and commissions, LARA safeguards Michigan citizens and supports business growth and job creation.

Get an EIN with the IRS

Any business that operates as a corporation or partnership or has employees will need an Employer Identification Number (EIN) from the IRS. An EIN identifies your business for tax purposes—think of it like a Social Security number for your business—and you can use to open a business bank account, file tax returns, and apply for business licenses.

Get a Business Credit Card

One of the most important reasons to get a small business credit card is that it keeps your business and personal expenses separate and allows you to track your business spending. Wherever you are banking will have their own business credit card options.

Get a Business Accountant

Hiring a business accountant is absolutely necessary for your small business—and well worth the cost. When it comes down to it, a business accountant can save your business thousands and make your life as a small business owner that much easier.
