Whether an online, home, store, Restaurant concession stand or a mobile cart, you will need to first select amongsole owner/proprietor, partnership, LLC or corporation, all of which also require a General Business License (not a specific license to your type of business) as well. If your trade name is a business name other than your full personal legal name, you will need to file a DBA .

For instance, your name is John Doe, and you do business as Best Restaurant By John, the name must be registered with a
DBA Biz Name because it is not your full legal name. Also, note that whatever item that you sell or lease and it is an item that can be touched (i.e., tangible such as equipment, toys, merchandise, electronics, prepared food) requires a state sales tax ID ( Sellers Permit ) to either buy or sell the items or products wholesale and or sell them retail.

If you are hiring Restaurant workers anytime soon, you will need a
Federal EIN and a State EIN (employer identification number). Other instances that you will need a federal tax ID are: if you are a partnership, an independent contractor, and a corporation or anLLC . You can also obtain a federal tax ID as a sole proprietor and use it as a business tax ID in the place of a social security number.

However, you will still need other Restaurant registrations, such as licenses, an assumed business name DBA, and tax IDs as described above. Finally, even one person, sole owner/proprietors working from home or just online can form a LLC or incorporate, in which case, they will not need to file a DBA.

I want to know what i need to open an shave ice cream cart at the flea market hi there! i am currently running my biz as dba but would like to become llc. do i fill out this form on line?

i am running my shaved ice biz as dba and want to be llc what do i need to do Hi, just trying to see what i need to start a shaved ice bussinessI am interested in starting a shaved ice standok my husband is opening this, he will not have any emplyees he will be selling shaved ice and it will not be a mobile stand .

WHERE do I check to see if the dba name is availablewhy do I need an ein if we don't have employees need to know about ice cream or ice shaved buisness.

You may be required to get these permit too....

If you decide to set up a corporation, you will also need a set of bylaws which are the internal rules to govern a corporation. Bylaws come with purchase of incorporation and included in price. If you doing business from home, you may need both a home occupation permit and a business license or one of the two. If you need both, we will obtain both for the price of one on this site. Keep in mind, most home based businesses are not allowed to post commercial signs and accept many client visits or commercial deliveries of merchandise in most neighborhoods.
Note that even if you lease personal property, you will need a sales tax id reseller number to collect state sales tax. Prepared food such as meals cookies ice cream etc is taxable and requires a sellers permit. If you are a service such as plumbing, you will still need a reseller tax number for the parts that you include in your service such as the pipes used because these are taxable.
An llc or corporation is a state created legal entity. It is like a person in papers only. If you set up an llc you will be a member of it but not the LLC itself.
Independent contractors work on a contract basis and the person receiving the service does not pay employmen taxes for these contractors.  
More: You need an LLC or Corporation to protect your assets such as your home or car. ; You may want to incorporate of form an LLC if you make direct sales to the public because it renders you subject to lawsuits. ; If you will hire employees, you need two employer identification numbers: one federal tax id ein and a state tax id number ein.; An S corporation is best to reduce self employment taxes because you can split divident payment and salary to reduce the tax. ; PA Generally, if you have any partners, you will need a federal ein irs number and a trade firm name registration.; In general a corporation or LLC is more credible than a sole proprietor. ; If you decide to form an LLC, you will need an llc certificate and an llc agreement. Our service provides both for the same price and you will not need anything else to be legal..
