Q: How do I make separate websites making online income part of one LLC in Ohio?
I'm not sure how to make sure my websites are "part of" of LLC business in Ohio. I recently established an LLC for my online media and website incomes. Each time I create a new income earning website, what steps do I need to take to make sure that website is part of the LLC, or shall I say a subsidiary?
A: You really just need to make sure the LLC is responsible for the websites. An LLC can be set up to engage in a specific industry or can even be very broadly defined to "conduct all lawful business." Found an LLC and define it as a company engaged in ecommerce and then use the LLC to set up various websites and track the websites performance and earnings in the LLC's books and funnel income and expenses through the LLC's bank account. Sign the necessary paperwork as Joe John (Owner) on behalf of John Doe Enterprises, LLC. Each time the LLC creates a website there should be a board meeting and minutes recorded authorizing the creation of the website. If you are a one member LLC, you can still keep minutes. Board meeting held March 13, 2015. Sole member / Owner present. Approves creation of gadgetsstuff.com a website devoted to blah blah, etc. You may benefit from hiring an attorney to make sure all the documentation is proper.
