The success of your small business often depends on skill, the advice you get, and perhaps a little luck. If you're starting or running a small business in California, you can turn to the trusted advice of the Silicon Valley SCORE small business consultants - at no charge!

  • Do you know how to choose the right structure for your business? Your form of business determines the amount of paperwork you'll have to file as well as your personal liability and the amount of taxes you'll have to pay.
  • Will you choose a fictitious business name? A fictitious business name is required for a business in California when the company name is not the same as your own name. Silicon Valley SCORE Consultants can help you with that decision.
  • Do you know how and where to register your small business for taxes? Get the small business consulting advice you need to find out about corporate, payroll, income, sales and other taxes - as well as learning about the different tax assistance programs available for small businesses.
  • Do you have to register for permits? In order to operate your business legally, you'll have to apply for the right business permits and licenses. With the small business consulting services of Silicon Valley SCORE, you'll have your own personal permitting and licensing guide.

The team of small business consultants at Silicon Valley SCORE brings a strong set of skills to the table to help you address all aspects of your small business with confidence.
