    Bank Account... Check!
    Company URL... Check!
    Incorporation... Check!

    What is your best advice for a business check list for start ups?

    I would add business attorney to that list! A good attorney is definitely an essential for a start up.

    I don't know about the situation elsewhere, but here in the UK most businesses will require some form of insurance. Easily forgotten, but vital.

    Business checklist is the key of the business. The business start-up checklist below is meant to remind you of the tasks you may have to perform when starting your business. The Starting your business checklist will guide you through the various stages of your business and includes the following key questions:
    1. Before you start a business
    2. When you start a business
    3. When you buy a business
    4. Running your business

    Choose your industry
    research it to find your niche
    write a business plan ( includes marketing plan)
    get licensed if necessary
    set up professional relationships ( ie banker, attorney, accountant)
    go to work!

    Of course this is a skeleton, but I'd love to hear feedback on this.............what you re-order, add to or take away some items?

    Set up a legal business structure by forming a LLC or Corporation. Obtain the necessary cash to start and run your business. Also if you plan on hiring employees you will need to obtain a Federal Employer Identification Number, also known as EIN.
