Bidding on my first commercial property this year and they require that you be Licensed and Insured. I've taken care of the insured part now im just trying to figure out about the Licensing part. Im subbing out the fertilizing part of the contract so other then that what is their?? Do i go to my local town hall and register my business with them??? My accountant says i dont need a Tax ID number since i only have a few accounts and ill be functioning as a solo proprietor. I just have to keep track of what i bring in and at the end of the year he'll figure out all the taxes and what not. So what are my next steps??
