Has Your Business Changed its Address This Last Year? [VIDEO]

Posted by Katherine L. Taylor, Attorney and CPA, Chief Problem SolverFeb 22, 20230 Comments

{3 minutes to read}  Has your business changed its business address within this last year? Maybe the business has physically moved to a new location, or maybe you've gone from a home/remote work structure to an office suite.

I'm Katherine Taylor, the lawyer for business owners, and I'm going to give you a list of things you must do if you've changed your business address this year or within the past several months: 

  1. The first thing you must do before you do anything else is to change the business address with your state corporate department in whatever state your business is registered. In Maryland, it's called the State Department of Assessments and Taxation. 
  2. Change the address on any tax accounts you might have for your company. That would include personal property tax, real property tax, income tax for the state or the federal government, and sales tax accounts. Many times, these are separate accounts with separate addresses. 
  3. Change your address with any licensing agencies that either you, as a professional, or the company itself, has with any state or local government. 
  4. Change your address with the post office. 
  5. Go through the company's vendor accounts and make sure that all of the vendors have the correct address. And if your company is a vendor, make sure that the address is changed on any contracts with your own customers and clients. 
  6. Change your address on your website and social media accounts.
  7. Look at your letterhead and check the company's email signature information — on all of your email accounts. 
  8. Check utility companies, insurance companies, and payroll companies. 

As a business owner, you must ensure that your address is updated in a timely manner.
