To keep things a little private I’m going to use fake names and domain names.
This is my first post so bare with me if i made this post on the wrong forum, if you know were it should be let me know.
So i started out my business as a sole proprietor with a DBA selling iPod accessories on eBay under the eBay name: iPodKing. It went pretty well even though i was having minimal sells but with a better margin than if i blasted eBay with a lot of listing however the fees eBay was charging was ruining my margin. So i decided to create a website, iPodKing.com - which is almost finished just a few things here and there. It’s the same concept of selling iPod related accessories as well as other computer supplies and accessories, as i did on eBay.
Now that it’s finally about to launch i just realized i made the error of filing for a DBA under my REAL name for "iPod King" before i started designing my website fearing that someone would take the name before myself (i know a little paranoid...haha). So know that we need to either Incorporate or become an LLC, I’m not sure how to transfer the DBA "iPod King" from my Name to my LLC or Corp. My Corp. or LLC is going to either be "Mera Enterprises Inc." or "Mera Enterprises LLC." (we are going to start up a web design company and real estate projects in the future which will be under the Mera Enterprises name).
So to make things short I’m asking two questions:
1) How do i transfer my DBA from my REAL name to my Corp. or LLC ??
2) Since I’m going to be operating some DBA`s online and some DBA`s offline what should i do? Incorporate or become an LLC ???
2b) What would be better for a business that’s strictly online with multiple sites?
Any feedback would be much appreciated. Oh I’m also in
