I am soon to be a licensed Florida Home Inspector. I currently hold a Florida Contractor’s License as well (active status under an LLC, although I am not currently contracting. Long story).
I want the business entity for my inspecting business to be a different name (that communicates “inspecting” and not “contracting”). For the time being and into the forseeable future, my business plans revolve around inspecting rather than contracting. FYI, I am NOT planning on offering contracting services to insection clients in case any of you were wondering.
So I have two choices… 1. Establish a new business entity for the inspecting business, and mothball the entity for the contracting business. Or 2. Legally change the name of the exising contracting business. There are pros and cons that I see for either choice, but I am relatively “green” when it comes to matters like this. I would like to see what the board’s feedback is on which way would be better.
Thanks in advance!
