I have had an LLC for the past 3 years for a Print brokerage business. I barely used it but always filed the taxes and kept it open in the event that I needed it. the last to years resulted in a loss. Now I am opening a bakery and was hoping that there was some benefit to just changing the LLC name so that I had the last 3 years of tax and filings associated with the EIN/TAX ID #. Plus I thought it would be cheaper to change the name rather than open a new LLC. Any thoughts on if there is any benifit to just changing the name and having the 3 year history?
