If you plan on starting a business in the New Year, you might want to seek out the professional advice and guidance of a small business attorney or law firm. It goes without saying that starting a business in Fairfax County, or anywhere really, can be a daunting task. Of course you will need to determine what your products and services will entail, but there’s a great deal more to consider too.

As a new business owner you will need to spend some time choosing a business attorney who will be able to advise you during the upcoming years. Deciding on the legal form of your business is quite important. You will then need to organize a variety of other things including:

  • Decide what type of business entity you should operate under.
  • Obtaining legal business licenses and permits for your business.
  • Set definitions in place to determine the legal rights, duties and obligations of your business officers, directors, partners and members.
  • Developing a pricing or cost structure for your products and services.
  • Decide on and set up an accounting system.
  • Opening a bank account.
  • Managing business and employee tax contributions and deductions.
  • Setting business insurance in place.
  • Arrange financing.
  • Decide how to legally protect trade secrets.

The legal implications of starting a new business can seem daunting, especially when you’ve just started a New Year, but they don’t have to be. With the help of the right professional business attorneys, you can have the legal side of your business handled efficiently and effectively for you.
