Hi all, 1st post on here. I have several questions but I'll start with the most important one. Business partner and I have an interest in starting a business, a retail cart that specifically sells upper quality confections. I have scanned the area and anticipate great success BUT due to current finances we are not running it yet. I have the designed logo, business name, business plan (15 pages, nothing big), and the passion for it. So, with that said, absolutely nothing has been set-up or registered: no business name has been reserved, no business accounts, no wholesale supplier relations, no CPA/accountant or whoever, no LLC partnership, no tax ID#, nothing really. (I don't even know how to open a business account...that's another story!) I don't know if I should do these things without knowing when to open/start? I'm just a bit nervous that I'm gonna stumble into a fee that is tax/etc related if I were to establish everything, even though I didn't start selling anything having no expenses or income. Should I just start signing forms and just get it over with, regardless of whether I open a month later or a year later? How much (ballpark) does the whole 9 yards cost and how long does the process take? (I'm just a little cart, so I'm assuming not much for either...). I live in NJ btw if this helps. Thank You in advance!
