So today, I gotten a call the people that want to help take care of my business name, incorporate and so on. They like the business plan, but they are wondering if I really need to incorporate in the first place.
Before they go to the next step, they asked me if I have an accountant. My answer was no. They asked do you have your books in order…
What I wanted to say was…
My paperwork that I try to keep together were in a storage place, but I was a little behind in the bills, so along with the last of my life from Phoenix, my data from old machines, my music samples, and the last of my official paperwork is now all auctioned away to the highest bidder about 3 months back and I pray to the Universe that the IRS will accept the “er… I lost all the data of the last 10 years to my inability to pay my bills, I’m lucky to have backups of pictures and my only photo album is on me, so can we like… pretend the last 6 years didn’t happen and start anew?”
(I am not over the fact that someone got my receipts from the World Series of 2001. Literally. My receipts. I worked those games. Next to the buttons I collected, those are my only proof of being at the World Series! THE WORLD SERIES!!!!)
What I said instead?
I said: ”My books are not as balanced as I would like them, but they pay the bills.”
They advise me that maybe it’s not best to incorporate until I get advise from an accountant. They will consider me after I get accountant advice, since it’s expensive and maybe counter-productive to do an Inc.
So… maybe I should just get a DBA, Trademark and call it a day?
