potential clients and they must also very clearly associate it with cleaning You also have to consider how the potential name will look on business cards promotional advertising materials etc and sound i e how it will sound when said out loud Also remember to be careful in choosing a name that is already taken or sounds like a business name that is already taken and registered The Trademark

this law may cause in legal issues and may end up with you paying monetary reparations and changing your business name For more help in selecting a business name business gov offers a How to Name Your Business guide Register the Selected Business Name Once you re sure about your selected cleaning business name you have to register it Registering your business name ensures that nobody else can use the name you have chosen Registering for trademark is not required but it usually provides further protection of your business name Just as you cautiously did not infringe on other s trademark names

lawsuit in court as a business A fictitious name filing also known as Doing Business As DBAs allows you to create name for your business that is different than your personal name In Delaware Fictitious Name Certificates for sole proprietorships and general partnerships see the section on choosing a legal business structure for your cleaning business are registered in the Superior Court Prothonotary s office in the county in which you are doing business Other types of businesses such as corporations LLCs LLPs and limited partnerships have to register their assumed business names with the Delaware Secretary of State Design a Logo For Your Cleaning Business The logo much like the business name will create an initial identification f your business The business logo you design will be the visual image that potential customers will associate with your cleaning business and so should be designed based on the name of the company its mission and goals and the business product Unique and well designed logos will help greatly in promoting your cleaning business to your target market A good business logo can be counted on to be a highly effective marketing tool in promoting your cleaning business A stylish business logo also helps attract potential clients and gives a singular identity to your cleaning business When designing your logo for your cleaning business you have to remember to make it eye catching yet simple It has to be easy on the eye and not unnecessarily flashy and flamboyant Make sure that the color palette and shapes you choose would draw out positive connotations in your cleaning business and not the opposite The logo should not appear cheap or showy and should just be appropriately professional and elegant You can also check out the logos that your competitions are sporting You will want you business logo to stand out among them Also pro tip business logos do not necessarily need to be a graphic or picture icon A graphically customized business name can maybe even better serve the same purpose You will also want your logo to look good on all sorts of marketing and promotional materials including but not limited to business cards fliers stickers letterheads You can always pay for the services of good graphic artists to design a logo for you Just make sure to provide them critical information about your cleaning business its name and other important particulars that they can use as their foundation for coming up with the logo design It will also be wise to get feedback preferably by someone from your target market on the logo and then continue revising based on the response given Acquiring an Online Identity for your Cleaning Business Having a domain and an online presence is highly recommended Nowadays an online presence is one of the prerequisites of running a modern business and during these times people will more likely peruse the internet for whatever information they need instead of opening the phone directory information on your cleaning business included As much as possible your website name should also be your domain name address If possible a form of your business name should be incorporated somehow into the domain name The most important thing is that your domain name reflects your cleaning business It is highly advisable if you are buying for example a com domain delawarecleaningbusiness com that you also buy the other main Top Level Domains or TLDs e g delawarecleaningbusiness net delawarecleaningbusiness org etc to avoid confusion If you do a domain name search and fine that only one of the TLDs is available it is recommended and it is especially beneficial if you consider the long run that you choose another domain name instead However if you are really decided on getting it one option is to offer to buy the domain name from its current owner You can find out who the owner is by checking up the whois information available for the domain and get in touch with the person or company listed as the current owner If they are willing to sell be prepared to pay more than if you are getting a new domain name Keeping your domain name short and simple is also suggested so that clients can more easily remember it As for web content make sure that you cover all the basics the name of your company the type of cleaning services and rates you are offering and most importantly the location of your business and the different ways the potential customer can contact you Deciding on a Legal Structure for your Cleaning Business When starting your cleaning business it is important to immediately determine what form or structure is most appropriate for your business plans The legal structure of your company can play an important role when you want to make loans or borrow money or attract more investors not to mention it will also determine the kind of tax return form you will have to file It will be wise to consult with an attorney or any form of legal counsel regarding this but just the same the most common forms of legal business structures are as follows Sole Proprietorship This is the simplest most basic business structure As its name implies the business is under the name of a single person Advantages of this type include full control of all the business assets and maximum profit for the owner as you receive all the earnings not to mention the profits are taxed only once However the owner also has exclusive liability over all debts and singular responsibility over all business obligations Partnership This is an association between two or more parties who share control of all business decisions General partnership is about sharing management not only of all business earnings and assets but of all business debts and obligations There is such a thing as limited partnership though where limited partners are just investors who cannot actively participate in the management of the business and have limited liability Corporation Corporations are a separate legal entity from their owners and are most common amongst big companies Generally shareholders are only accountable for their investments in the company There are two types of corporations C Corporations or Regular Corporations must file a tax return each year in order to pay tax on the corporation s income Profits are given to the shareholders after paying the tax and then in turn the shareholders must pay tax on the amounts they receive S Corporations or Subchapter Corporations are created through tax elections This structure is not subjected to double taxation and forming an S Corporation allows you to benefit from the limited liability of a corporate shareholder but pay taxes like you have sole ownership of the business Limited Liability Company LLC This is a fairly new business structure allowed by state statute Advantages of this structure include being able to have multiple owners with said owners enjoying the limited liabilities similar to those of corporation shareholders In Delaware if your cleaning business is a corporation an LLC or a partnership then you must register with the State of Delaware Sole proprietorship businesses do not have to register with the state Getting an Employer Identification Number EIN An Employer Identification Number or EIN is also known as the Federal Tax Identification Number It will be used to identify your cleaning business as an entity All businesses are required to have an EIN and the business owner must obtain one from the U S Internal Revenue Service There are a number of ways you can apply for an EIN for your cleaning business Apply Online You can apply for an EIN at the Internal Revenue Service website As soon as the application is completed and validated during the online session an EIN is issued immediately This is the recommended method of applying for EIN Apply By Telephone By calling the IRS Toll Free Business and Specialty Tax Line at 800 829
