We never got around to changing the business structure. It is a sole proprietorship in her name. We have vending and a business bank account. Is there an easy way to just change or do we file for new business license and essentially start over completely, applying for vending accounts, etc.? Trying... Read more »

He has a “to do list” with 10-12 things he wants done, and if one is not he would take 10% each of our tips for the day (cash and extra gratuity tips). He also takes them and holds on to them till Friday and then gives them to us.
Depends on whether he's at least paying you minimum wage ($7.25). If not, then he can get in some big trouble for that scheme, and you may want to consult an employment law attorney. Employment law attorneys don't typically charge consultation fees, and in some cases, may take some cases on a...Read more »
I want to provide a basic wilderness survival class to minors and adults, age 12+, that involves one day lecture (8 hours) and one day (overnight) practical experience (total of three days) in the wilderness (though, not the backcountry as medical services are readily near). Are there any... Read more »
I can't possibly think of a department or 'professional license' that this would apply to.
If anything, the bigger issue is working out possible areas of liability such as if someone is injured while hiking or while engaged in any of the survivalist activities. You would probably want to...Read more »
My former business partner bought me out of the business, however I am still a guarantor on a large SBA loan. I am trying to determine the financial health of the company in order to assess my vulnerability, but my former partner refuses to provide P&L reports or to acknowledge that I have a legal... Read more »
The easiest way is to refer to any purchase agreement for the business and see whether there are any terms that can be used for establishing your continuing right to monitor the business's financial health as it relates to the SBA loans. But if the purchase was done via a handshake agreement and...Read more »
My husband and I want to open a video-gaming cafe that will have a gaming portion and a small pizzeria portion as well as a snack bar. When looking around for commercial space, a leasing agent commented that someone had tried a similar business model but ran into legal complications. I am currently... Read more »
I don't see anything particularly concerning about this business model. It's just an updated arcade that serves food. As long as you obtain all proper business permits including health permits, and establish appropriate privacy and internet security safeguards, there shouldn't be anything uniquely...Read more »
I purchased a dealership from a national distributor. The cost of the business was $ 22,500.00 and I borrowed an additional 25,000 in startup capital. After starting the business, I discovered the distributor made several false claims. They claimed to be a national manufacturer. They are... Read more »
At face value, it sounds like you might have some valid claims. But the only way to find out with some real certainty and fully assess your legal options is to consult a business/commercial litigation attorney. Attorneys need to review all the pertinent documents, correspondences, marketing...Read more »
The articles of organization and the operating agreement cannot limit the use of the power of attorney for members. If there is no prohibition on a non-member being given the POA to act on behalf of a member's part, it is most likely permissible.
The idea being that if the principal is not in BOD meeting attendance, then the primary is his proxy. If principal AND primary are not in attendance, then secondary is principal's proxy. Proxies are not addressed in Articles or By-Laws.
Also if valid proxies and all other directors are... Read more »
In theory, sure a director could have alternate proxies based upon availability, but it should very clearly be established in any appointment forms regarding the circumstances when a proxy has the authority to operate on behalf of the principal. I have to stress that it should be VERY clear....Read more »
If your question is whether it is legal for a donor non-profit organization to donate any potential "profits" (funds received to be used for the organization's primary service objectives) to donee non-profit organizations, instead of the donor non-profit organization performing activities for their...Read more »
What's true is that you do require a registered agent. The registered agent can be just about anyone as long as they are designated by you to receive legal paperwork on your company's behalf. Many entity startup businesses (such as LegalZoom and a ton of "Create a S-Corp in 5 Minutes!" companies)...Read more »
About the only way to do that is to have a lawyer write up a Post-Nuptial Agreement for you that you and your wife both endorse. It is a lot like a Pre-Nupt, but after the marriage. If you were to use separate money, and keep it all separate, including the work, that might also work for your...Read more »
