Welcome to the blog series where we plan on discussing the various legal and practical aspects of starting a business in Oklahoma.  Whether you finally have the courage and resources to start the dream business that you have always wanted, or change or add to your existing one, you will find this series helpful.

Starting a business is hard, we know this because we have been there ourselves.  From name creation, logo design, and website construction, to developing a fully operational entity, it takes an appetite for risk-taking, business acumen, and grit.  Regardless, the process can be intimidating and overwhelming.  If you are going through this whirlwind, Niroula Law is here to help you through it.  We would love to ease some of the burden by assisting in entity selection, entity formation, and organizational document preparation.  You can contact us online or by telephone to get in touch with a business law firm and speak to an Oklahoma business attorney.

We will cover the following topics in this series:

  • How to start a business in Oklahoma?
  • Know the cost of starting an Oklahoma LLC
  • Know whether Oklahoma requires a license for your business
  • Find out if you must renew your Oklahoma LLC every year
  • Vital difference between an Oklahoma LLC and a sole proprietorship
  • Vital difference between an Oklahoma LLC and a corporation
  • What are the advantages of an Oklahoma LLC?

I selected these topics for several reasons.  First, starting a business from scratch seems daunting, and many Oklahomans find themselves lost in the process.  In our first post, we will discuss some of the basic steps in starting a business in Oklahoma.

Second, the burning question at the forefront of everyone’s mind is the cost.  In the subsequent article, we will discuss the cost involved in starting an Oklahoma LLC.  The registration of an LLC by itself isn’t expensive, but other costs associated with starting and running a business can be.

Subsequently, another often-asked question is regarding the business license.  In the next article, we will discuss the license requirements for various types of businesses.  Oklahoma does not require a general license; however, certain types of businesses and occupations may require licenses and permits.  Additionally, a separate post will answer the question of whether you must annually renew your Oklahoma LLC.

Many people throw around the terms for entity types such as an LLC, Partnership, or Corporation often without a core understanding of the differences. In the subsequent posts, we will discuss the vital differences between an LLC and a Sole Proprietorship, Partnership, and Corporation.

Finally, in the next post we will talk about the advantages of setting up your business as an LLC, as opposed to other entity types.  And, we will end our series with a post instructing how to make a S-Corp election in Oklahoma.
