Can I take over my boyfriend's small business??

Posted by   + Show Post
So my boyfriend started up his own small business a couple years ago, but he is no longer operating it/ not selling items anymore.

Anyways, I'm a stay-at- home mom and we've talked about me starting up a small business with some diy bath/beauty products so I would have an income (hopefully!) and he mentioned that maybe I can just use his old business.... Like he's got the name, a business license for it, etc. I guess I'm just wondering if I can start selling my own stuff under his company without having to do anything?? Or would my name need to go on the business license maybe?? Would I be able to change the current name of the company?? Would letting me take over cause any issues when filling taxes??

If anyone knows anything about this sort of thing I would certainly appreciate any insight!!

If it's his business you'll need to do some kind of legal switchover but I don't know what that would be. He may have to sell it to you.

I agree with the opinion that it's better to get some legal paperwork going to transfer it to you.  Additionally I can suggest you to check this platform http://roix.io for seaching the best selling products and analyzing market. It helped me great when I started my own small business a few months ago. Good luck with your new business!

Why do people come on here and ask questions only an attorney should answer?

Because maybe there's 1 or more ladies on here who might know the answer and/or have actually done this. It's worth a shot.

But every state and country is different. What goes in one spot, won't go in another. Personally, for anything legal, I wouldn't take hte advice of a total stranger on a forum.
