    Using dedicated business banking and credit accounts is essential for 报销英文personal asset protection报销英文.

    When your personal and business accounts are mixed, your personal assets (your home, car, and other valuables) are at risk in the event your LLC is sued. In business law, this is referred to as piercing your corporate veil.

    Additionally, learning how to build business credit can help you get credit cards and other financing in your business's name (instead of yours), better interest rates, higher lines of credit, and more.

    You can protect your business with these two steps:

    报销英文1. Opening a business bank account:报销英文

    • Separates your personal assets from your company's assets, which is necessary for personal asset protection.
    • Makes accounting and tax filing easier.

    报销英文Recommended:报销英文 BlueVine is an 报销英文online bank报销英文 with free business checking and no hidden fees. Great for businesses who do not often deal with cash.

    报销英文2. Getting a business credit card:报销英文

    • Helps you separate personal and business expenses.
    • Builds your company's credit history, which can be useful to raise capital later on.


    Improperly signing a document as yourself and not as a representative of the business can leave you open to personal liability. When signing legal documents on behalf of your company, you could follow this formula to avoid problems:

    1. Formal name of your business
    2. Your signature
    3. Your name
    4. Your position in the business as its authorized representative

    See the image below for an example.


    This ensures that you are signing on behalf of your LLC and not as yourself.



    Depending on the nature of your business, you may be required to register for one or more forms of state tax.


    If you are selling a physical product, you’ll typically need to register for a seller's permit through the Louisiana Department of Revenue website.

    This certificate allows a business to collect sales tax on taxable sales.

    Sales tax, also called "Sales and Use Tax," is a tax levied by states, counties, and municipalities on business transactions involving the exchange of certain taxable goods or services.

    Read our sales tax guide to find out more.


    If you have employees in Louisiana, you will have to register for Unemployment Insurance Tax through the Louisiana Workforce Commission on behalf of your employees. Employers will also need to sign up for Employee Withholding Tax through the Louisiana Department of Revenue.


    Louisiana requires LLCs to file an annual report with the Louisiana Secretary of State. This can be done online.

    报销英文Late Filings:报销英文 Louisiana does not charge late fees if you miss your filing deadline, but may报销英文 dissolve or revoke your LLC after 3 years 报销英文of failing to file an annual report.


    LLCs may face fines and even automatic dissolution when they miss one or more state filings. When this happens, LLC owners risk loss of limited liability protection.
