Do I need an attorney or CPA to start a business?
Question Details: I want to start a barbershop/salon but do not want to pay unnecessary fees. I need direction but want to be as cost efficeint as possible right now. Do I absolutely need a CPA or lawyer in order to register my business? Does a CPA or lawyer take care of every detail associated with registry?
No, legally you do not need a CPA or an attorney: you are allowed to form an LLC or corporation, register your business, obtain any necessary licenses, etc. on your own.
There are lawyers who will take care of all of this for you if you wanted (a lawyer, not CPA, would be the best one to help with this: these are fundamentally legal, not accounting, issues), but not all lawyers would: you would need to inquire around to find a lawyer who does this.
