Step 3: Finding Premises
A lease contract of the business premises is one of the important documents submitted when filing for incorporation.
When registering a business you need to provide a local business address. And this address must be approved for business use by the City or County. A Post Office Box cannot be used as a registered business address. As long as the zoning is correct, a wide range of properties is permitted—in city, suburbs, or country; modern luxury apartment, residential flat; factory; warehouse; or a short-term legal address can be registered in a business center while ideal premises are sought.
