LLC For sole ownership

Asked by: betty  — 17 August, 2012

Hello, I am starting an online business in Georgia. What would be the best way to set this up as a sole ownership?

When you register an LLC with one owner, the IRS will by default classify the business as a disregarded entity/sole-proprietorship. You would need to have the company registered with the state, and obtain a federal EIN for the business. (It is also highly suggested to get an Operating Agreement as well).

Please keep in mind, if you would be selling products, or purchasing any supplies in wholesale, you would also need to apply for a Georgia state sales/use tax, also commonly referred to as a reseller’s permit. You will see this option under the state and federal licensing section of the application.
