Starting a business doesn't have to be challenging

Building your business is an important first step for any business owner. We've partnered with MyCorporation, a Deluxe® company, to help you obtain the resources you need to jump start your business.

Forming as a Limited Liability Company (LLC) or Corporation limits your legal and financial responsibility as a business owner for the activities and debts of the business. It allows you to create a separation of your business assets and personal assets.

Benefits of Incorporating

  • Protection of your personal assets
  • Save money on taxes
  • Build credibility for your business

  • Allows you to be able to open a business banking account
  • Filing an EIN allows your business to build its credit profile
  • Allows you to hire employees

Filing a Doing Business As name (DBA) allows you to operate and receive payments under a different name from your legal business name, helping you create an identify for your business that presents it in a professional way to customers and vendors. A DBA also allows a sole proprietor to operate under a name other than their legal name.

Benefits of Filing a DBA

  • Accept payments and open bank accounts as your business
  • Gain creditability and legitimacy as a business
  • Separate your lines of business

An Operating Agreement is an agreement among LLC members that defines how an LLC will be run, provides details about the business conducted by an LLC, and the rights and duties of its members. Once a document is signed by the members of the LLC, it acts as an official contract outlining the business' financial and functional decisions.

Benefits of Having an Operating Agreement

  • Clearly outline the details of your business
  • Defines roles and responsibilities of the members of the business
  • Helps protect your personal assets
