Frequently asked questions
We recommend, at a minimum, that business owners 1) settle on a name; 2) decide on a business structure; 3) have a working idea of start-up and 6 month operation costs; 4) know who will be the owners of the business; 5) settle on who will be the officers, if any, or managers of the business; and 6) have a short, working business plan.
After completing these initial items, there are still several other steps necessary to complete the incorporation process. Additional information may be found on the California Secretary of State website at https://www.sos.ca.gov/business-programs/business-entities/starting-business-checklist/.
We recommend that every business take a look at their business succession plan every two to three years.
A name matters. Researching an appropriate name early not only helps with the company’s branding in the long run but helps prevent issues later. If an owner discovers early on that the business’ proposed name is too similar to a competitor or may infringe on another’s intellectual property, the owner can make an adjustment rather than having to rebrand and face the possibility of a lawsuit.
