My answer to How should I start small business effectively?
Answer by Raad Ahmed:
I agree with a lot of the advice you’ve already been given. The legal aspect of a small business is incredibly important because it establishes the foundation for the entire operation. If you don’t take care of those finer details early on then you will likely pay for it later. As far as focusing on the legal issues, here are a few of the top areas you should consider:
- Developing a solid business plan
- Crafting solid operation agreement
- Detailed partnership agreements
- Following tax laws associated with business
- Proper filing and reporting
- NDAs or other contracts
Depending on the details of your business, you may or may not need some of the points provided here. However, to get your business up and running under the best conditions, it’s best to consult with a business attorney.
An attorney can help you identify what type of legal contracts you should file, how you can go about licensing your business, or even help with internal documents that help keep your business operating smoothly.
