Whoever gave you the information that you do not need to be licensed to do weekly maintenance is incorrect. You need to apply for a home improvement license. It will cost approximately $700 for the fees and testing fees. You will need insurance before you can become licensed and you will need a business bank account as you must pay the fees with a check showing your business name. You need to also provide them with a state sales tax ID # and a Federal EIN# Search around the suffolk county website and find the forms you need.

As far as incorporation, that is up to you and your tax situation. My company is set up as an LLC. Filing fees of $200. Then you must publish with two newspapers for 6 consecutive weeks. you will receive and letter saying you published and you must file that with the state with 180 days along with another $50.

There is a lot to being legit.

Where are you located and where are your clients?

HOME IMPROVEMENT CONTRACTING -- Excluding work in the electrical
and plumbing fields as defined by § 275-2 of the Suffolk County Code, any repair,
remodeling, alteration, conversion, modernization, improvement or addition to
residential property, and includes but is not limited to alarm systems; carpentry;
fencing; driveways; exterminating; flooring; heating, ventilation and airconditioning
systems; masonry; roofing; siding; swimming pools; and
waterproofing, as well as other improvements to structures or upon land which is

property or the sale of goods by a seller who neither arranges to perform nor
performs, directly or indirectly, any work or labor in connection with the
installation of or application of the goods or improvements to residences owned

12-15-1998 by L.L. No. 2-1999]

That is an excerpt from the law. Maybe if you are only maintaining properties you do not need one....that would be news to me...But if you get caught putting down mulch you would be operating without a license or if you trim a bush??? Id really like to know more.....

Eastern suffolk is big. Maybe more detail.

S corp is fine if that is the best for your tax situation. I personally would not incorporate in another state simply for the extra tax paperwork you will have to do. Delaware is a state where a lot of Banks form corporations because of favorable laws.

You def. need to be insured though and I would Double check with consumer affairs so you don't get fined.
