I'm not positive but I believe it would be close to the same here. Different states have different laws and all states are required to follow federal guidelines/laws. Do you know what state you want to start off in? I think that's the best place to start. Deciding what state you want to begin your US operations in & do the research from there. Contact a business lawyer in that area. They would be best able to help you set up your US operations.
Anyone else have any thoughts?
There is a company (on line) called Business Licenses.
They identify your business licenses needs by business code and zip code.
Try them, they are in all 50 states.
Nice add, Luckiest. Thank you for sharing.
