I have registered a company in WA state and have gotten certificates and papers of incorporation. The paper mentions that next step would be to get the master business license and to avoid administrative dissolution business entity needs to pay license fee etc.But when i goto master business license website it asks questions like "What is first date of business? (defined as the day you started generating income) but since i just started the comapny i dont have any income and i am in startup mode, so i am wondering how can i avoid the administrative dissolution? this seems like a conflicting requirement.
second question is how soon you need to get the business license after you incorporate a business entity?
