Business formation may be more manageable in Atlanta than ever

Atlanta ranked as America's fifth-friendliest city for small businesses recently, paving the way for entrepreneurs to roll up their sleeves and get the business formation ball rolling. Georgia was ranked the sixth-friendliest state in the nation for small businesses overall.

In an economy where more people than ever are seeking independent options, finding a business-friendly market is important to success. Georgia scored highest in the nation for the ease of starting a business, which may serve as a positive n indicator of entrepreneurial success in the all-important business formation stage.

The business formation process is a necessity for any entrepreneur and new business. The process goes beyond determining which legal form to use and touches on matters including contracts, licensing, health and safety, zoning, taxes and more.

Entrepreneurs in Atlanta may be pleased to learn that the city ranked among the highest in the nation in the Thumbtack.com-Kaufman foundation survey for some of these processes including: number 14 in licensing, number 15 in tax code, number 16 in health and safety, and number 19 in zoning. Each of these key components to starting a business may be more manageable than ever thanks to Georgia's and Atlanta's business friendliness.

Individuals looking to start a business in Atlanta or elsewhere in Georgia may find that business formation is not as difficult and tedious as it may at first seem. The Secretary of State's office offers a plethora of valuable information and tools to help entrepreneurs considering starting their own business.

And when the time is right to get things started, the wise entrepreneur will want to work with an experienced attorney to ensure that all the right mechanisms are put in place for growth and continuing success.
