This may be a stupid question, but I just wanted to double check before proceeding. I will be registering a business. I am in a state where you cannot bake from home. I will be renting space from an existing business owner. When filling out the registration, do I just use my home address for the main address of the business? I will not be baking from my home. I dont feel comfortable using the address of the rented kitchen as 1) it is not my location and 2) it could change in the future.
When filing for your DBA use your home address, If your state requires a sales tax certificate then you have the ability to put the location of where you produce your product and a place where you prefer it to be mailed (your home). Generally for rented kitchens you put in one area where you will be producing the product and in another area where the license and other correspondance should be mailed (your home). At least that is how it is done in Texas. When you rent a kitchen you are classified as a food manufacturer not a food establishment.
Ok, thanks a bunch! That makes sense!
I rent a commercial kitchen but use my home address on legal forms. My home is my office, but I bake and decorate in the commercial kitchen. HTH!
