So, I am trying to come up with a list of all different companies that will need to be contacted as soon as the closing is complete, and here is my list so far:
1) All dental supply vendors
2) Utilities: Electric, Gas, Water
3) Phone company
4) TV/internet provider
5) Creating new business accounts at bank
6) ADP for payroll
Yes, #3 and #4 are currently separate, but I’m looking to change that.
My partner owns the building so just have to sign the lease for that.
Ok, that's clear now. So you're keeping the corporation with the same ID number so all you're doing is notifying everyone of the name change. If that's the case, have a form letter ready to go with all the bills you'll be paying over the next year that come to you in the old name.
You'll also have to notify the IRS of the name change so it matches up with the TIN number. I believe the insurance companies will require a W-9 with the new name as well so they can match it up to the TIN# they have on file as well.
