    Hi yhere, I am wanting to start a cupcake business from home via the cottage food law and am wondering how to go about registering a business and business name?

    If you go to the state website, it is very easy to set up your business account. It is very reasonable. They send you, your EIN right away. I am selling products on Amazon. I am trying to use the cottage food law to make cookies. It took me three days just to talk to someone who could answer my questions on how to get a tax id. The form was on the Virginia government tax page. I had no idea I needed one to sell online. I am would love to hear from people who have baked from home using this law and who have been successful. Good luck.
