I've been working at this small shop since they opened. A few months ago the owner offered to sell the place to me. We hammered out some details and things are moving forward. I want to cross my "t's" and dot my "i's" as this is the first business I will own. Here are the things I have but I'm not sure what more I need to do.
I have an LLC
I have a DBA
I have an EIN
I have applied for a New York Employer Registration Number
The landlord is writing up a new lease for me.
I have a lawyer that is corresponding with the current owners lawyer.
I have a bank account.
I'm in talks with an insurance agent now.
I'm in the process of applying with all of our wholesale accounts.
I don't know what more I need. Are there more forms I need to fill out? Are there other things I should be aware of? I'm starting to feel a little out of my depth.
