Big step #2 of starting a trucking company, after setting up your business, is applying for your DOT Number and MC Number, aka Operating Authority. You can’t do much in trucking without one or both of these numbers. How do you know which one you need or if you need them at all? My buddy Tyler with Motor Carrier HQ and I cover all the basics in this episode.
This episode is a deep dive (and I mean deep into the “exciting” world of lawyers and accountants) into the foundation of starting a business. I cover how to set up your business from a legal and tax perspective. As part of this episode you’ll hear straight from two experts I interview. Preston Koerner with Koerner Legal Advisors will go over the legal piece and Jason Grant with Trackin Assets will talk about different tax considerations.
Welcome to the first episode of the Haulin Assets podcast. I’m super excited to share this project with you and sincerely hope this podcast will make your journey starting a trucking company smoother and more successful. You’ll get to follow along with me as I go through the process and participate in my successes and challenges. Hopefully, you will learn from what I do right and from the mistakes I make along the way.
