I will be registering as an LLC soon and I am looking for some tips on what should be done, for example, what kind of license do i need, what type of insurance i should carry on equipment/company. Basically this is alittle new to me i have been mowing for the last three years with a friend who is in the business,and this was his last seaspm and he is turning over his accounts to me. (A total of about 125 accounts) I know how to run the business, and use the equipment, i just really need help with creating an LLC. Any help would be greatly appreciated

To set up an LLC you can go to the state website, michigan.gov. Then click on Business and Economic Development and this should give you a lot of info about starting the business. Somewhere there is a form that you can print out to apply for an LLC. Its very easy and I think the cost is 25 or 50, I can't remember for sure right now. There is aslo a form so you can also register your name so no one else can use it. For the license, I think you don't need one if you are just cutting. As far the insurance, I'm not sure what to get and I'm looking for info on that too. Hope this helps.

As long as you are not useing pesticides or insecticides you don't need a license. just watch what you are doing and don't get caught with any weed killer or the like, BIG FINE. AS far as insurance find a agent who deals with many different companies they will search for you save your self the time and headache.

Hi E & K Outdoor Services,

There are many many books out there that can walk you through the process of creating an llc. If you get a chance, you might even want to go to your local library and ask the librarian for some books on this.

Ideally though if you have the funding, consult with an attorney.
