    Hey, so I recently made a new Adsense Business Account with a EIN that I got. I'm new to this so I am not sure what else is needed. I read in another thread that I should register for a DBA. Is that something that is necessary? Also in terms of a bank account, can I use a personal bank account for EFT or do I need a business bank account?

    Thanks!

    I know a little bit about general business topics. Regarding a DBA, it depends. If your business (your LLC, LLP, corporation, etc.) is what you want to use and is the name you want your company to go by, then a DBA isn't needed. If you want to do business as something else then apply for a DBA with your county and state. Ex. Bob's Media Group, LLC dba Dragon Internet Marketing Experts

    Definitely get a business banking account(s). Keep it separate from your personal account because come tax time, it'll be much easier to deal with plus as you grow, you'll be able to adequately track what comes in and out which is important to track the health of your company. Good luck!

    Ok thanks. But if I open a Business Banking account, won't it need to be in my business name so won't I have to get a DBA just to open the bank account?
