I will be in business my 2nd year this coming spring. I have had a young man ask me about going in business with me. I'm not crazy about the whole partnership thing ,so my question is: Can 2 solo operators work together under one name? The 1 name would be for advertising only. We keep our own records ,pay our own insurance ,and we have come up with a plan to pay ourselves. Is this ever done? Is it legal? It seems like it would be easier than all the partnership tax headaches ,and if we split for whatever reason we don't have a problem dividing up equipment. So what do you think?
