Starting a Business in Texas

OpenThe Dow Jones closed at an all time high last week, and reports indicate the housing market is slowly making a comeback. Economic experts generally agree the U.S. economy is making progress, albeit in baby steps, down the road to recovery. You may be thinking this is the perfect time to start that business you’ve been dreaming about. If so, there are a few things you need to know before you get started.

First, do your homework. Know your market and study industry trends. Use this information to try to predict where you should focus. Invest wisely, set reasonable goals, and plan to grow your business incrementally as your client base grows.

Next, armed with market research, decide which type of legal business entity is right for you. An experienced Texas business law attorney can explain the various entity types available to you and help choose the right one to fit your circumstances.

Before you actually open for business, you need to understand the tax responsibilities, licensing needs and employer requirements for your business.
