The answer to this question will largely depend on your specific business and how you want to expand your operations in the future. However, most small business owners choose to register their businesses as limited liability companies (LLCs) due to the flexibility and utility of this entity type.
In Virginia, the Commissioner of Revenue or Department of Finance for your city or county website will issue your business license. You’ll have to go to their website or call them to figure out the specific requirements for your location.
Put simply, the different types of business entities all serve to adjust the liability, interest, and tax responsibility the owners have in the business. For example, in a sole proprietorship the owner takes full responsibility for all of the business’s liabilities, while a limited liability company (LLC), as the name might suggest, limits how much liability is passed on to the owner(s).
Generally speaking, yes, but it can vary from county to county and city to city. Most of these professions have official licensing boards through the Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation, so you’ll have to get a license from them. These professions include, but are not limited to, architects, engineers, barbers, real estate agents, and attorneys.
When you apply to establish a business in Virginia, your business name will automatically be registered for use throughout the Commonwealth. Sole proprietorships, which don’t require a formal business application, should instead register their name through a fictitious name or “Doing Business As” (DBA) filing with their city or county Clerk of the Circuit Court.
