Looking to open a new business in Connecticut? An important first step is to register your business with the State.
Of course, this is only one of many important "first steps" as you form your business. By this point, you probably already have a business plan, you've chosen a name and a business location, and you're likely already thinking about customers.
But before you open those doors, you'll want to register. This helps Connecticut keep an accurate public record of your business.
The good news is that you can complete the entire registration process online. That way, you can accurately record your new business with the State and get back to planning for opening day.
The registration process is fairly straightforward. However, before you start you'll want to gather a few key pieces of information:
- Your business name
- Your business street address
- Your business NAICS code
- A business email address
- The name of your business agent
There's a good chance you have some questions about this whole process, like - “what’s a NAICS code?” or “who is my business agent?"
