Would like to get started in eCommerce and trying to better understand the legal side of things in terms of incorporation.
I assume I need to incorporate right? Seems like common recommendation is LLC. Does this have to be registered in CA or can i do it elsewhere (often see Nevada/Deleware recommended) but don't quite understand how that works if your residence is in CA.
Any way to get around the $800 LLC fee? Quite expensive for having no sales guaranteed
Other than applying for an EIN after registering are there any other legal actions I need to take to be in good standing? Any other recommendations if my business will be purely online (ecommerce/content sites?)
Any help would be appreciated!
