the first step is a DBA, even if you are not going to start for another few months, I would first get your DBA, then open a business checking account. After that get your liability, property, and if needed workers comp. If you have employees don't forget to register with the state, fed, and unemployment. You will need a federal id number through the fed, and with the state and unemployment you will receive an employer number
