Securing my business name.

P. MeyerP. Meyer subscriber Posts: 1 Member
I'm getting everything in order to start my business. I've settled on a name, made sure no no one else is using that name, and even got lucky enough to secure a domain name that matches my actual business name. I'm not actually ready to start sales yet though. My question is should I go about registering my name with the secretary of state (I'm in North DAKOTA) before I'm ready to actually begin sales? I want to protect my business name but I don't know if I'll have to start reporting financials to the state and IRS once my business name is on paper. There are no financials to report and there won't be for awhile .
