Legal Answers
Q. Could I buy a “holding” company LLC that holds recipes and stipulations for the restaurant LLC I own 60-40?
A: Not sure what you mean by buying the holding company. But it is not unusual to set up a separate LLC to own recipes or systems/processes or equipment and the license or lease them to multiple operating entities for each restaurant location. Provides asset protection, different streams of revenue for different investors, etc
Q. Do I need legal document living with wife and sister in law in family home wife sister 50/50 split estate.
A: You (and your wife) need legal documents (including a Deed) to close the Estate and make sure all Inheritance Taxes were paid so you end up with clear title to the property. You should also have an agreement between your wife and your sister- in- law to manage the property. Your wife and sister- in- law will be partners after the Estate is closed and sister-in-law no longer in charge of property after the Estate is closed.
Q. I am starting an online business in PA and live in NJ. Can I use a virtual address to form an LLC in PA?
A: If you are looking to organize a PA LLC it will require a street address for the Registered Office in PA. That can be an office or something simple like a UPS Store "suite" address, or you can hire a Registered Agent in PA.
