Hello do anyone know when getting ready to publish your first game do u really have to register a DBA Name form a LLC or INC is all that really necessary when you just a sole proprietor working alone.
No. I'm assuming you're US based.
You do not need a DBA or LLC to conduct business. Taxes are tracked two ways, either through your EID or SSN. You only need an EID if you are employing people (and still do not need one if only contracting workers).
A DBA only gives you the legal right to operate under that name. IE, make a bank account called "my game company"
Oh even though the games that I sell will be under a different name and not my legal real name and yes im.US Based from Illinois
Yeah it's fine. Just make sure you do your taxes if you make money.
Okay i just dont want nobody sueing me saying I took they company name or anything etc .
I'm still waiting for the fruit orchard industry to sue apple.
Oh what happen there
You read this tutorial.
that didnt really help about having a dba name as it still hard to know what company name can you use in google play or app store etc etc

lilvee1989 Sole Proprietor is ok, but it's almost always wise to have an LLC though. I set one up in Washington State for about $300. Each state varies in cost but having the shield of an LLC for the worst case scenario of a lawsuit is a good idea. Talk to a tax or legal guy or do some research online to the benefits.
lilvee1989 a DBA just means Doing Business As - it is still technically a sole proprietorship. All a DBA does is allow you to operate under the name of the business and accepts payments made to the business name.
— it cost $700 for LLC in illinois so that $300 not too bad actually . And yeah i know folks out there is quick to sue thats why i want all my games to be original and different
