Local Codes and Ordinances
Businesses need to abide by local ordinances and codes. New Hampshire businesses may also need permits to operate legally in certain areas or need to comply with laws related to state or federal regulations. There are also many necessary steps to declaring and operating a limited liability company, often referred to as an LLC. An LLC must make a legal declaration as a business entity and must register a name that has to be approved, as it can’t not be too similar to another LLC. There needs to be an operating agreement drafted and the rights of members need to be outlined. The registration also entails the following steps:
- Preparation and submitting of annual reports
- Registering a tax identification number
- Obtaining the necessary permits
- Registering a physical address, not a PO box number
Benefits of Becoming an LLC
One benefit of declaring a business an LLC is that members are protected from individual liabilities if there are debts or liabilities tied to the business. Although there is this level of protection for members, member rights may still need protected in other ways. There needs to be clearly defined provisions for a member’s share of a business if that member retires or dies. Disputes between members may also need legal intervention. For the protection of everyone associated with an LLC, legal counsel is advised on an ongoing basis.
