Start a Business

There has never been a better time to start a business in Wauchula than right now! Careful planning prior to launching your business is one of the keys to success, and we’re here to help you become a prosperous member of our community. This information may prove to be helpful for your new business ventures.

Prepare a Business Plan

Developing a business plan is one of the most important steps in making your decision to start a new business. Fortunately, there are resources to assist you in creating your business plan. The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) can assist you with creating your business plan, which is often a requirement for securing business financing.

Come Up with a Business Name

Our friends at the SBDC at USF created this awesome video outlining "7 Mistakes When Naming Your Business". 

Determine your Business Structure

LLC, Incorporated, Sole Proprietor…which is the right decision for your business? Making the decision on how to legally structure your business is important, and we suggest that you consult a professional. Fortunately, we have many attorneys and financial service companies that can assist you with the process.

Get your Federal Employer Identification Number

All businesses must register for an Employer Identification Number, commonly called an EIN. Applying for an EIN is a free service offered by the Internal Revenue Service. Beware of Web sites on the Internet that charge for this free service. Click here to apply for your EIN.

Decide on the Location

Wauchula offers new land that’s ready to develop, as well as existing office space to fit almost every budget. One of our commercial real estate agents can assist you with the entire process, from selecting a location and negotiating the terms of your purchase or lease. More information on properties that are currently available can be found on the Hardee County IDA/EDC’s website.
