Real Estate Holding Company Business Plan
Get your business license. You can't do business without a business license. Later on, having one also will make it easier to figure out your new venture's tax information. A quick visit to the U.S. Small Business Administration site can show you almost everything you need to know. Enter information about your location, choose the appropriate type of license, and the site's resource describe what you'll need to obtain your license.
Once you register with the government, you'll need to introduce your business to the IRS. That involves acquiring an EIN (Employer Identification Number). This isn't a requirement for small businesses without any employees. It is helpful, however, and you can apply online for an EIN.
