New small business owners face a myriad of challenges getting their business ideas up and running. Marketing, securing products, staffing, and establishing processes are just few challenges new owners might have to navigate. However, there is a whole other set of challenges that are often unexpected, the unwelcomed “partnership” with government, federal, state, and local. Likely aware of the tax law, what probably surprised them was the plethora of regulations, compliance costs, licensing, etc. associated with their new firm and location. Just cutting a curb to provide customer access to your parking lot can be a huge headache. Unfamiliar names like OSHA, EPA, FDA and others suddenly demand your attention and compliance with their rules.
