Candice Wright, Food and Beverage Food and Beverage in AZ

ANSWER:

Hi Candice Wright: Here is what you need for starting your
Food and Beverage business in AZ.




Here is What You Need...

Drink Vending

Drink Vending, except for bottled drinks, draft drinks, hot or cold, are prepared food, then you must charge taxes before selling it – unless you sell it wholesale.
In either case, you will need a wholesale ID also called a resale license or Sellers Permit to sell the Drinks wholesale, buy the wholesale or sell them retail in small amounts.


This is because any type of prepared food, including hot or cold drinks , is a taxable sales event when it takes place.
Other than the Sellers Permit, you will need an occupational Business License and a filing of a fictitious firm name also called a DBA.
So, if you name your Drink Vending business "Hot n Cold Drink Vending,” you will need to register other name with an assumed fictitious business name DBA filing.


This is a great business to start if you have a low budget and you want to make good profits and interact with people.
Some people drinks from a mobile drink trailer, a mobile Drink Vending cart or a stand. Some sell it in drink stores.

Alcohol Retailers Liquor Store Drink Vending: A retail liquor store alcoholic beverages seller also needs a Sellers Permit and a Business License in addition to a liquor license.
Unless you just sell bottled drinks, selling prepared drinks that you make home or in front of drink buyers, Drinks or Drink Vending is a food business.


Since a food business, first, you need to be certified to handle it.
There are online courses for about $20 for preparation and then you take a test to be certified. A good place to sell your drinks are festivals, swap meats, art shows, baseball or any other sport even and other community events where people gather.
If you will hire drink vendors, you will need a federal tax ID Number and a State Employer Number.

You also need a federal tax ID if you are a partnership, an independent contractor, a corporation or an LLC.

You can also obtain a federal tax ID as a sole proprietor an use it as a business tax ID in the place of a social security number but other registrations, such as licenses, an assumed business name DBA, and tax IDs still needed as described above.

Finally, even drink vending sole owner/proprietors working from home or just online can form an LLC or incorporate, in which case, they will not need to file a fictitious business name DBA.

Selling any type of drinks like bottled drinks, draft drinks, hot or cold drinks, are taxable when sold retail or wholesale so you need a Sellers Permit. Note that you also a Business License and if using a trade name a dba filing. If selling liquor alcoholic drink beverages, you will also need a liquor license or a beer and wine license.

Required Registrations for food and beverage.




A(n) food and beverage Business Tax Registration
(Business License)

(Also callled an occupational license,or business permit.)

You can choose to be a(n) food and beverage :

  • Sole Proprietor,
  • LLC,
  • Corporation or
  • Partnership.
    After you decide and select your business entity, you need licensing.



Clearlake Business Tax Registration ( Business License)
All businesses including home, online or mobile BUSINESS need a BUSINESS license because they are BUSINESSES.



A(n) food and beverage business doing business under an assumed business name in Lake County i.e. you are a business that uses a DBA doing business as trade name to trade that is other than the full legal (first and last -- full name) name of a sole proprietor or a name other than the LLC or Corporation business name need a(n) assumed business name certificate.   E.g. you venture into a(n) food and beverage business and you give it a trade name such as "Excellence food and beverage & Associates". You will need to register an assumed business name certificate.

In CA you need a resale ID ( AKA seller's permit) if you selling touchable items.  (A.K.A state id, wholesale, resale, reseller certificate, about $39 for most states).
Seller's Permit



Note: All businesses need a federal tax ID number except sole proprietors that are not employers and are not independent contractors.
An independent contractor is a self employed business person that receives more than $600 per year from anyone of his or her clients.
IRS rule: The client must issue a 1099 form to the independent contractor and the independent contractor must have a federal tax ID. However, even sole owners may obtain a federal ID and use it as a business tax ID instead of using their own social security number as a business tax ID number.
However, all other licenses that apply to sole proprietors as discussed here are requited regardless of getting a federal tax ID number.


In addition you will need a federal and a state EIN if you will hire employees. I.e., a CA Federal Tax Id Number ($29)  and a(n) CA  State Employer Tax Number  


Instead of filing a fictitious business name DBA Filing (about $49 plus state and legal newspaper publication fees) in Clearlake, Incorporate in CA  or form a(n) CA LLC


Filing a DBA is not required if you will set up an LLC or form a Corporation. If you will do business under your first and last legal name you will not need to get a fictitious business name.
Also note that even using your first and last name may not help you avoid filing a DBA if the name has a suffix such as "& sons" etc.



If you do form an Other llc or incorporate (about $49 plus state fees for most states) your food and beverage business instead of just filing a fictitious business name (dba), that insurs that you don't have personal liability for debts and civile liabililty arising from your business dealings and you will not have to record the Clearlake business name. In lieu of recording a Lake County trade company name (our filing service fee includes trade name registration and newspaper legal publication for 4 weeks) you can also form a corporation in CA or form an CA LLC (starts @ $49 plus state fee for most states & includes bylaws for the corporation and Limited Liability operating agreement for the LLC that is required to open a business bank account). .

I cook, and I sell along with cooking food to fit the needs of others. I cater to the needs of the community at an affordable cost.


Starting Your Own Food Business Before starting a food business, let us see what it is: The food business has a long range of types of food operations. For example, it can be a business at home bakery or a large restaurant.

There are catering, bars, food trucks, hot dog stands etc. All food businesses need a reseller permit because prepared food is taxable. Since a food business is prepared food, then you must charge taxes before selling it – unless you sell it wholesale.

In either case, you will need a wholesale ID also called a resale license to sell the cupcakes wholesale, buy them wholesale or sell them retail in small amounts. This is because any type of prepared food is a taxable sales event when it takes place. Other than the food seller's permit, you will need an occupational Business License and a filing of a fictitious firm name also called a DBA.

So, if you name your food business “Whole Food That Will Make You Skinny,” you will need to register the name with an assumed fictitious business name DBA filing. Here's how to get your Business License for your food business. First, you will need to be food certified.

REQUIRED LICENSES
Legal Structure

Whether an online, home, store, concession stand or a mobile cart, you will need to first select among sole owner/proprietor, partnership, LLC or corporation, all of which also require a General Business License (not a specific license to your type of business) as well. If your trade name is a business name other than your full personal legal name, you will need to file a DBA . For instance, your name is John Doe, and you do business as Best Widgets By John, the name must be registered with a DBA Biz Name because it is not your full legal name. Also, note that whatever item that you sell or lease and it is an item that can be touched (i.e., tangible such as equipment, toys, merchandise, electronics, prepared food) requires a state sales tax ID ( Sellers Permit ) to either buy or sell the items or products wholesale and or sell them retail. If you are hiring workers anytime soon, you will need a Federal EIN and a State EIN (employer identification number). Other instances that you will need a federal tax ID are: if you are a partnership, an independent contractor, and a corporation or an LLC . You can also obtain a federal tax ID as a sole proprietor and use it as a business tax ID in the place of a social security number. However, you will still need other registrations, such as licenses, an assumed business name DBA, and tax IDs as described above. Finally, even one person, sole owner/proprietors working from home or just online can form a LLC or incorporate, in which case, they will not need to file a DBA.
