I have been doing landscaping/lawncare professionally for years. I'm now starting my own gig this year, because I'm tired of working for a company and not making any money. I found the website for PA to apply for my business name. There are three options to pick from and I'm a bit confused. The site is talking about multiple license and permit applications etc. I just need the paperwork for the company name. Or is there something else I need? I don't want to have to pay $80 for a company name if I don't have to. Maybe I'm looking into this too much. http://www.businesslicenses.com/pricing.php?state=PA&license_type_id=Fictitious%20Business%20Name Which option out of the three should I go for. I'm leaning towards the second/middle option but I'd rather go with the first choice. Any advice or input is greatly appreciated.
