Topics on the Web site range from the most basic and crucial, such as choosing a business structure or hiring a lawyer, to highly specialized issues such as e-commerce and exporting.

The site also acts as a gateway to federal, state and local information that affects small businesses. From the site, business owners may quickly check zoning codes for their local area, or file a complaint with the Office of the National Ombudsman.

There are sections tailored to laws and regulations for each state; some of the topics discussed include getting permits and managing employees. The site also offers a business FAQ. If you're in a legal pinch, go straight to "Finding a Lawyer."
