Truex Business can be a great ally in the specific market research process for the American market.

Write Your Business Plan

Your business plan is the foundation of your business. It is a roadmap of how to structure, manage, and expand your new business. You will use it to convince people that working with you or investing in your company is a smart choice.

Finance Your Business

Your business plan will help you discover how much money you will need to start your business. If you don't have this amount on hand, you will need to raise or borrow the capital. Fortunately, there are more ways than ever to find the capital you need.

Choose Your Business Location

The location of your company is one of the most important decisions you will make. Whether you are opening a physical business or launching an online store, the choices you make can affect your taxes, legal requirements, and revenue.

Choose a Business Structure

Your business structure affects how much you pay in taxes, your ability to raise money, the paperwork you need to file, and your personal liability. Select which type of company makes the most sense for your business: Corporation, Partnership, Sole Proprietorship, LLC, or LLP.

You will need to choose a business structure before registering it in the state. Most companies will also need to obtain a tax identification number and file the appropriate licenses and permits.

Choose carefully. While you can switch to a different business structure in the future, there may be restrictions based on your location. This can also result in tax consequences and unintended dissolution, among other complications.

Choose Your Business Name

Choosing the perfect name is not easy. You will want one that reflects your brand and captures your spirit. You should also ensure that your company name is not being used by someone else.

Register Your Business

After choosing the perfect business name, it's time to make it legal and protect your brand. If you are doing business under a different name than yours, you will need to register with the federal government and perhaps the state government as well.

Obtain Federal and State Tax IDs

You will use your Employer Identification Number (EIN) for important steps to start and grow your business, such as opening a bank account and paying taxes. It's like a social security number for your business. Some - but not all - states require you to obtain a tax ID as well.

Apply for Licenses and Permits

Keep your business running smoothly and in legal compliance. The licenses and permits required for your business vary by industry, state, location, and other factors.
