    Very simple. Call City Hall and find out what you need in your area to operate without troubles :dizzy:

    You will need to file a company name with the state
    Get a consumers affairs license
    For that you will need business liability, and 2 passport photos.

    If your in Nassau
    Call the licensing line 516-571-3871
    160 Old Country Rd

    North County Complex, Bldg. 340
    Hauppauge, New York 11788-0099
    (631) 853-4600

    Start with them.
