VT Starting a Business

Provides help with various aspects of starting and running a business such as business registration, trade name registration and applications, business plan help, business structures, financing, tax information and more.

Frequently, people that form a business in Vermont choose a Vermont LLC.

Sometimes it makes more sense to incorporate in Vermont with a corporation in Vermont, which can be elected to be a Vermont S corporation.

Either way, we like to recommend Northwest Registered Agent for business startups because of their suite of business maintenance tools and great customer service.
