Welcome to our forum!

It depends on what kinds of services you are looking to offer. Have you come up with a list of them yet? Are you looking to spread fertilizers or pesticides? What about landscape installations?

There is a $75 a year fee for a dba? UGH! Does every state do this?

Not Every state, Because I paid Ten dollars to file, and I'm good for five years. I think that is crazy having to pay 125 to start then 75 to keep it?

We have a few business plan discussions on the forum that I think you would benefit from reading.


Try using those questions and responding to them on here and we can look into it to see how it can be expanded upon and elaborated.
