How to Create your own Business

First, you should come up with the name of your business then do a name search in the Oregon business registry to make sure it hasn’t already been taken.  If available, you should determine what the business entity type you will choose.  Whether it is a sole proprietorship, LLC, or other corporate entity, this can have important legal and tax considerations when forming your business entity.  Our Business Lawyer can help guide you in determining the best entity to start with.

Your next step is to formally register the business with the Secretary of State.  Once registered, you can also apply for respective Business License, Business Identification Number, and your company’s tax number which will be necessary to set up a business bank account.  If you anticipate hiring employees, a payroll will be required as well.  Our attorney can help you to draft the important legal documents associated with an LLC or corporation which will act as the Constitution for how you and your business partners will conduct business as it relates to your company.  Our lawyer also helps you to follow all required corporate formalities in the course of your business.
