Frequently Asked Questions About Business Formation In Kentucky

Many people come to our firm seeking guidance and answers regarding business planning and formation in Kentucky. At Miller Edwards Rambicure PLLC, we know how complex this can be, so here are a few quick answers to questions we see often:

Do I need a license or a permit to start a business in Kentucky?

There isn’t a statewide business license that you have to get in Kentucky. However, you may need a specific license, depending on the type of business you’re operating. In some cases, businesses need to have environmental permits. Every situation is unique, so business owners must look into their obligations in advance.

What tax obligations should my new Kentucky business have?

It depends on the business structure that you’re using. For example, if you have an LLC or an S corporation, then you are obligated to follow Kentucky’s limited liability entity tax laws. You’ll be taxed based on your gross receipts. But if your business is structured as a corporation, then you have corporate income taxes that you need to pay. These are based on taxable net income.

Does my business need a registered agent?

Yes; under Kentucky state law, all businesses registered within the state must also have a registered agent. If you’re the business owner, this could be yourself, another person you’ve selected or a professional agent. This person needs to be contactable during business hours, receive mail and have a physical address.

What legal requirements do I have when running a business under Kentucky law?

You’re required to follow local laws in your municipality regarding the need for a business license. You also have to register the business, typically by contacting the Office of the Secretary of State. You are obligated to pay property taxes to the Internal Revenue Service and keep financial records regarding payments to your employees.
