A complete resource for small business owners or those who are planning to open a small business

  • May 21, 2010
Nolo's The Small Business Start-Up Kit - A Step-by Step Legal Guide is a complete guide for Small Business (and Business in general). This book is filled with useful "tips", "cautions" and "examples" that makes it fun to read and easy to understand. This book doesn't tell you what business to open, or what product and services to offer, but it pretty much cover everything else that you need to know about operating a small business. It also covers all the important forms and documents (tax forms, contract templates, EIN application, partnership agreement, buy-sell agreement entity classification etc). Many more relevant forms and document templates are in the CD-ROM (CD-ROM included). Some basic business financial planning are also covered such as cash flow projection, profit/loss forecast, break-even analysis, etc. I would recommend this book for current small business owners (who want to manage their business better) and for people who are thinking to open a small business.

Here's the content of this book:
1. Choosing legal structure (SoleProp,Partership, LLP, LLC, S Corp, C Corp)
2. How to pick a good business name (including choosing web domain name, and understanding Trademark Law and registration)
3. Pick the right location and complying with zoning laws
4. How to create an effective business plan (describing your business, making financial projection and analysis, raising money, etc)
5. How to price, bid and bill projects
6. How to comply with federal, state and local business start-up requirement
7. Managing risk (Insurance, warranties, risk management strategies, lawsuit)
8. Paying tax (income tax for different legal structures, sales tax, city and county tax)
9. Special condition and restrictions for home based business
10. How to enter into contracts and agreements
11. Keeping the books (Accounting basic and accounting methods)
12. How to market/advertise your business
13. Promoting your business online (e-business)
14. How to deal with changing ownership
15. How to build your business and hire workers
16. How to get and deal with professional help (lawyers, accountant and legal research)
17. Small business resources and state by state contact information
18. Tear out forms (tax forms etc)
19. CD-ROM with more forms and document templates
20. A useful Index

All the best for your Small Business ventures!
