Military spouses are talented, high-performing and motivated individuals, many of whom have an entrepreneurial dream to turn their countless volunteer hours, hobbies or work experience into a business of their own. If you are thinking about starting a business to fulfill your entrepreneurial dream, you’ll need a starting point. Or, perhaps you already own a business and are interested in learning more about state and federal business laws.
The Small Business Administration’s “Stay Legally Compliant” page introduces the legal and regulatory considerations of owning your own business:
- Internal requirements
- Requirements by business structure
- Ongoing state filing requirements
- Ongoing federal filing requirements
- Maintaining licenses, permits and recertification
Arm yourself with as much information as possible when starting out on your own.
For additional information on starting your own business, visit the Entrepreneurship and Self-Employment section of the Employment Readiness lifecycle stage of MySECO.
