Steps to Incorporate Your Business

Steps to Incorporate Your Business

Incorporating your business is a process that must be done right to save time and money. Here are some steps that you need to take to incorporate your business.

Choose a Name

You will need to incorporate your business under a specific name. Perform a search to make sure that the name you want is available because you cannot incorporate it under an existing business name. You can check on the Florida Secretary of State’s website.

Choose Your Corporate Entity

This may be the most important decision that you will make when starting a business. You will usually choose between a corporation and an LLC. Then, you will choose what type of corporation you are starting.

Create Your Business Documents

Each business must have incorporation documents and bylaws. These will govern how your business is run. These are documents that you need to have, but they will not be filed with the state. Work with an attorney to create these documents because they will impact your business.

File Your Paperwork

The necessary documentation to file with the state is the articles of incorporation. That is how your business officially begins. These can even be submitted online. While this is not a complicated document, it is one that must be correct for your business to be incorporated. The state will acknowledge receipt and that your business has been incorporated.

Hold a Shareholder Meeting

You would need to get together with partners or shareholders to decide some of the business formalities. At the meeting, you would also sign the necessary corporate documents.
