  • raise start-up money
  • choose between a sole proprietorship, partnership or LLC
  • get licenses and permits
  • buy or sell a business or franchise
  • negotiate a favorable lease
  • insure your business
  • hire independent contractors safely
  • understand small business tax rules
  • pick and protect a good name
  • resolve legal disputes
  • adopt the best customer policies
  • enter into strong contracts
  • cope with financial problems

    The 12th edition is revised to provide the latest regulations, tax numbers and business realities in a changing economy. It also provides a start-up checklist, an expanded discussion about choosing a business structure, updates to bankruptcy law — and much more.
