The repossession field can be very rewarding and extremely lucrative once a clientele has been established. But there are some pre-qualifications to consider. Before launching a repo business, you should have some experience in property recovery, private investigation or tracing. A person wouldn't start a plumbing business without knowing how to fix a leaky pipe. The same goes for the repo world. If you have the necessary experience, you first need to obtain the proper licensing. For instance, many states require that you obtain an auto repossession license before you perform these services. Check with your state's licensing board. From there, you will need to get up to speed on the legal aspects of the business. States vary, so again check with the appropriate people at your local, county or state government. You'll want to take care of registering your business name, forming the legal business entity (i.e. LLC, C-Corp, etc.) and filing any appropriate paperwork with the state. You should always consult with an attorney or tax adviser before choosing your corporate form. At this point, it's time to put together a cohesive business and marketing plan. Consider the markets you want to target, your overall budget, equipment needs, payment structure, etc. Once you've covered all of these steps, you're good to go. Get busy marketing and make lots of money!

Yes, they do. In particular, bail agents must have a special license to supply bail bonds and, in some cases, must also carry special insurance policies on their business.

Yes. In order to receive contractor license bonds, you must first be licensed which will require certification classes.

To operate a cleaning business, you will need to obtain a business license from your city or county. The cost will depend on where your business is located - costs vary by city. Generally, costs can range from less than $30 per year to over $100 per year. You can find licensing information online using the Small Business Administration website or by searching for your city + business license. You can also call or visit your local city office. Depending on the type of janitorial business you're starting, you may want to also look at janitorial surety bonds.

Bonds in this category include license and permit bonds, which protect city or state governments against claims that arise because of a license which the government body issued to some party.

With the economy in a down-turn, many are looking for a new business venture that will survive the recession. One industry that will never go out of business is corrections and criminal justice. But short of becoming a police officer or a judge, how can one break into this business and make money? One possibility is to open a bail bonds business. A bail bondsman is a person who will put up money (bail) for a defendant in a legal case and guarantee that they will be back in court for the trial. Sound interesting? Here are a few tips to get started in this potentially lucrative business:1) Understand the Legality: It is a little known fact that bail bonding is not legal in all states and it has strict regulations where it is. Check specific state laws before going any further in the business start-up process.2) Licensing: Most states require both a bonding license and a business license. These are two separate types of licenses that must be acquired in the right order. If the application for a business license is put in before the bonding license is granted, the business license will most likely be turned down. Getting proper legal help will usually prevent any issues in the licensing process.3) The Fugitives: Being a bail bondsman will mean dealing with the clients who choose to run. Because of this obvious hazard associated with the bail bonding business, at times it may be necessary to use the services of a bounty hunter. While this is expensive, it’s better than losing the entire bail on someone who chose not to show up to court.4) Marketing: There is a reason that so many bail bond offices are located near jails- that is there primary target audience. Being known around that community is the best way to get the business out there. Also, contact the local police station and get on their directory of bail bond offices- this will drum up a lot of business.Once you’ve got your license and you’re ready to go, find your location and get ready to start your new business. Good luck!

Yes, they can share ownership, just so long as he himself does not act as a bail agent. Bail agencies need a deep pockets investor. They invest their money in the business and make a profit from the percentage that the agency charges to write bonds for defendants.

Every business must be licensed, even online enterprises operated by a sole proprietor. Starting a new business can be exciting, and it is easy to neglect obtaining the appropriate authorizations. Businesses that sell retail goods must register with tax authorities at the national, state, and local level. Failure to comply with all regulations carries fines and penalties, and vigilant authorities may padlock a business that evades getting a business license. Ignorance is not an acceptable excuse for people who plan to start their own business. Legal advice can help identify what steps to take to ensure proper licensing, and lawyers can also help owners choose what form their business should take.Owners must choose a business name that does not infringe on registered trademarks. There are three forms of business that an organization could take: sole proprietorship, partnership, or corporation. Each has a different legal structure, and there are advantages and disadvantages to each form that owners must consider. Owners must understand the issues surrounding legal business structure, so they can choose the best option for their enterprise. The fledgling business may also be required to obtain permits or permissions such as environmental clearances, permission to sell alcohol, or health department certification. Whether a business is a proprietorship, corporation, partnership or franchise operation, owners must comply with a dizzying array of permits and licenses.BondsSmall businesses are frequently required to post surety bonds, especially those firms contracting to build or remodel. Bonds are financial backing that guarantees performance if the company fails to fulfill its obligations. Types of bonds include licensing, performance, payment, bid fulfillment, and indemnity. Some states require license bonds before a company can conduct business. Performance bonds guarantee work is completed as promised. Payment bonds guarantee compensation to subcontractors. Bid bonds may be required when bidding on a job to guarantee the company will do the work if the bid is accepted. Indemnity bonds guarantee any loss that work may cause due to negligence.Additional PermitsBusiness owners may need any number of licenses, registrations and permits. Failure to comply could result in fines, penalties, personal liens, interest charges, and other sanctions. The business might be prohibited from opening, or the firm could be padlocked because cash-strapped tax and licensing administrators seek to crack down on unlicensed businesses to expand their operating budgets. Owners might need sellers' permits, fire or police department permits, zoning permits, sales tax licenses, home occupation permits, or many other legal permissions to operate. Legal advice can help owners avoid the pitfalls and meet all regulatory requirements.
