Did you know that small businesses represent almost 99 percent of all employers in the state of Florida? Although there are more than two million small businesses located throughout the state, there is always room for one more.
There are many benefits of starting a small business in the Sunshine State. In addition to what this means to your professional career, you are also in position to do some good for the state's economy.
The Florida Department of State Division of Library and Information Services provides a variety of resources for entrepreneurs interested in starting a business. SurePayroll also provides some key information about Florida payroll.
The steps you take to start a business will be nearly identical to anybody else who is doing the same. The Florida Department of State makes note of six details that require your attention:
Selecting a location
International trade information
Permitting and land use
Most of these details will pertain to you, but some of them will not. For example, not every new business needs to select a location. Some people will set up shop in their home, avoiding the time and cost associated with finding and renting office space.
