Entertainment business sounds coooool!

I did a quick search online given you're based in Detroit, MI (I might be wrong). Here's what I found:

Basically a list of things you must do regardless of business type.
1. Obtain a FEIN (something like your business SSN)
2. Register the assumed name (be creative:))
3. Obtain UIA Number (you need this before hiring others)
4. Obtain a Sales Tax Licence
5. Register your business with the Michigan Department of Treasury
6. Obtain all necessary permits (industry specific)

Good luck!
