Business Formation Overview in North Carolina

Starting a business requires time and attention to detail. It’s important to make sure that each step is completed fully and correctly before you can move on to the next one. Our attorneys can work with you to ensure that the process goes smoothly.

Take a look at a brief overview of the process:

  • Choose a name for your business
  • Decide on what type of business you will create: corporation, LLC, nonprofit, etc.
  • If you are starting a corporation, LLC, LP, LLP, LLLP, or nonprofit, then you must register with the North Carolina Secretary of State
  • If you are starting a sole proprietorship or general partnership, you must register with the county
  • Register your business for taxes to receive a Federal EIN
  • Create a business banking account
  • Apply for all permits and licenses

    If you are unfamiliar with any of these terms or unsure about what kind of businesses entity is right for you, our team can review the information with you and help you make strategic decisions. We can also help you purchase or rent commercial real estate. Many first-time business owners choose to register as a Limited Liability Company (LLC). These businesses are generally easier to set-up and more cost-effective for small businesses.
