    'illegal' business, questions & thoughts, tips and Ideas.

    Hello. In order to not cause a lot of confusion with my title (Made you open up the thread at least eh ? )

    My question is basically, how many launch their "company" with a non registered company name, taxes etc etc you know the thing.

    How many is doing this? Is this Okay? Please discuss! What is the minimum requirement in order to be "allowed" (In a public view/ & legal) in order to be able to run a webhosting service?

    Discuss!!

    So much of this depends on where you're located.

    In the United States you can start a company which works out to be you "doing business as" your company. It's simple to do, but you don't really have any legal protections in the event something goes badly wrong.

    My preferred way of doing things is to start a division of my core company, then spin the division off as it's own corporation once it's on its feet.

    In Missouri, you still have to file to do business under a fictitious name and acquire a tax ID.
