Hi all you great people. I sent in all my paper work to get legal for homebaker. I know the next step is to get licensed. So my question is about registering a business name. I was told by the Va. Dept. Aggriculture I do not need to register a business name for my county(Scott). So if I don't have a business name , do I just use my name? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Tammie

I would contact a business lawyer in your area. You might want to consider incorporating or doing an LLC to legally protect yourself and separate you from your business in a positive legal way.

You can also get a "DBA" (Doing Business As) Which is just a legal asumed name for your business.

I set up my company through Legal Zoom but I'm a Corporation and then filed for "S" status through my accountant. That was the best to protect my personal assets and put me in the best tax situation. Everyone's situation is a little different so that is why I suggested talking to a local lawyer, accountant, or even some local business owners. Good luck with this!
