  • First, business entity formation: your preference for forming an LLC requires that you obtain an LLC certificate and an LLC operating agreement..

  • Second, in WI, in addition, since you indicated that you want to buy wholesale and sell retail, you need to obtain a Seller's permit because you will need it to buy tax free and collect taxes when you sell retail to the state of WI.

  • Third, furthermore, since you mentioned that you will hire employees, you will need to obtain both a state EIN and a Federal EIN because you will need to withhold and remit employment taxes to both the federal and state governments.

  • Fourth, a business structure such as sole proprietor, LLC, or corporation must be selected. Nevertheless, the assumed business name:"Roberts xyz cZoun53590" which must be registered with a(an) Dane County fictitous business name or a Lim. Liab.

I have two businesses. One Herbalife nutrition and one retail clothing. Should I do DBA or LLCs?

Hi Sandy, you should get an LLC instead of a DBA. To Set Up Permits, you will need to obtain the licensing required for clothing.

You can obtain them on our site as well as obtain all the licensing you need to run your hair store.

That said, clothing is subject to sales tax when sold. Thus, a wholesale clothing seller will charge you sales tax unless you hold a seller's permit that enables you to buy the items wholesale.

For example, if you buy clothing worth $100, you will be subject to 5% you will end up paying $105.

The Wisconsin (WI) state sales tax rate is currently 5%. However, if you add local tax, the total tax rate can be as high as 5.6%.

Sales tax is a tax paid to a government (state or local) and it is collected for the sale of certain goods and services.

Regardless, as a business, you will need to register the business name "Sandy's Fantasy Gifts," with a DBA, LLC or corporation.

Furthermore, all businesses need to obtain a business license. Finally, hiring workers requires a withholding tax registration with a federal EIN and a State EIN.

Does a Thrift Store Business Need a Sellers Permit?
What other permits and Tax IDs Does a Thrift Store Business Needs to Legally Start business operations?

A Thrift Store business needs a sellers permit because most of the used items such as clothing, furniture and accessories sold at a thrift store are taxable.

All Thrift Store products, food, equipment that anyone can touch is taxable. In addition, a Thrift Store business must decide on the business type of organization as a sole proprietor, LLC, partnership or corporation. Some thrift stores decide to be non profit organizations, which is also desirable in some cases.

Furthermore, a general business permit and a federal tax ID number is also required for any of the above business type organizations.
The only exception to a federal tax ID number is a Thrift Store sole proprietor, who can use a ss# instead of a Federal ID.

However, even Thrift Store sole proprietors as well as all other business type organizations that are employers, independent contractors, LLCs, or corporation must obtain a federal tax ID number.

Any type of business organization, including Thrift Store sole owners, must obtain a state employer tax ID if hiring employees.

Finally, a Thrift Store sole owner (i.e., an one person business) can obtain and use a federal ID as a business tax ID instead of the social security number and, in addition, he or she can form an LLC or set up a corporation instead of organizing as a sole proprietor.
Most Thrift Store businesses do not need any surety bond insurance either but they can optionally purchase it and also purchase a general liability business insurance or home business insurance.
