Incorporating Online Retail Business

Hi all!

I`m about ready to incorporate my business-to-be and I`m wondering
about incorporating my online retail business using an online corporation

My business will see sales nearly entirely from outside my state (New
York). I know it isn`t ideal but it`s where I must live until I can afford to
leave and move, either to Vermont or Canada, until I`m rich enough from
my enterprise to be able to buy a townhouse off Fifth Avenue.

I`ve thought to incorporate in Delaware but I`m concerned that it`s fairly
pointless seeing as I won`t be able to leave New York for a while unless
this thing takes off beyond my wildest expectations.

My lawyer and acccountant friends suggested just doing a Delaware LLC
through a good online firm for now and if things get big then I could
always sell this company to another one domiciled in another state (or
even country). As I`m bootstrapping this thing for now, it seems to make

Any thoughts or suggestions or questions are greatly appreciated!

    My recommendation would be to run everything under one incorporated business to get started. There is no reason to spend all kinds of money for what would technically be 2 different businesses with twice the tax paperwork, etc.. when it is still a "business-to-be."

    Go to,
    you can incorporate easily, and they have template driven steps to complete all your legal processes, Then they have a very nice and finished document that will be printed for you in a neat legal fashion.  Very professional.  Great customer services.  I have incorporated, made wills, copywrited, trade marked etc.  kat
