So how would a Relocation Ninja Warrior act?
Ninja rule #1: Escape if you can; if you can’t, kill.
The first item on your relocation agenda should be disconnecting your company from your current state. You might be able to just “escape” by becoming a ‘foreign’ corporation in your new state. Otherwise, you may just have to “kill” your old business name and start over from scratch in the new location.
Ninja rule #2: To be a Ninja, you need the ability to predict your opponents’ moves and out-think them.
Don’t be bashful about finding out what is required by law in your new state. The names of the appropriate government offices and some laws will be different from state to state, so do your research. And before you drive to government offices and stand in line, determine what information and official paperwork they require so that you don’t end up wasting your time – and theirs.
Ninja rule #3: If a Ninja can avoid fighting, she will.
Don’t argue with the requirements and regulations in your new location. Just find out what you have to do and do everything necessary to comply – avoid the fight at all costs.
Ninja rule #4: Ninja warriors don’t only use the ancient Japanese weapons; they are often trained in modern weaponry.
Research the various state government web sites to learn what is required for conducting business in that state. Most state web sites are very user-friendly and quite thorough nowadays. If you still have questions contact that office by e-mail or phone.
Ninja rule #5: Ninjas are masters in the art of perseverance.
Be patient and persevere! Relocating a business from one state to another is a challenging task requiring patience, planning and constant follow-up until all systems are in place and operating properly. The “operating properly” part may take up to one year to fully realize.
