Business formation: Buying an existing business may be better

The business entrepreneur in Oregon who is contemplating opening a new business will also face the issue of whether it might be better to purchase an already existing business. Sometimes, the overwhelming range of activities needed for business formation from scratch will deflect the entrepreneur's enthusiasm for the project. The effort of buying an existing business instead of new business formation has some attractive benefits that may make it easier for an investor.

Employee handbook may be written in the business formation stage

There are various standard legal procedures required to start a business in Oregon. One important component of a small business is an employee handbook, which is generally most useful if prepared and distributed before the business formation process ends. Unfortunately, only about one in four small businesses have an updated handbook. There really is no downside to having a good manual to assist workers in understanding the rules of the workplace, benefits, rules of etiquette and other general guidelines for the job.

Startups can benefit from common business formation strategies

In Oregon, many startup businesses try to get established each year. These companies must make various decisions and meet regulations regarding business formation issues. Beyond that, the company needs to find the secret to steady business growth, healthy sales of products and services, and being able to realize substantial profits for an extended time.

For example, two giant companies battling over proprietary rights and other contractual matters have been Apple Computer and the chipmaker, Qualcomm.
