Small business owners can now have access to online resources to learn about small business plans and to purchase online business plan samples.
Starting today, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) will require that companies include a “small business plan” in their online offerings.
Starting in April 2019, companies must include the option to submit their plans to the FTC within 30 days of the end of the initial offer period, and companies must submit all of their plan materials to the commission within 90 days of receiving the plan.
The FTC’s policy is to ensure that companies have all of the required information to successfully submit their plan, but some small businesses may want to add an extra step or two to their online plans to ensure they receive a complete plan.
Additionally, if the small business is a partnership, the company’s small-business partner program will no longer require small business customers to complete additional forms to receive the small- and micro-business program.
Companies will have to also make sure that all of these materials are available on the company website.
In addition, the FTC will be requiring that small businesses have the opportunity to create and submit a “commission submission form.”
This form will allow small businesses to submit plans and submit their own data.
In order to submit the plan, a small-and-small business will need to provide the FTC with information about the company, such as its name, address, telephone number, and email address.
If a small company is a sole proprietorship, it will be required to submit an annual report on the status of its business and to submit all information related to its business activities to the IRS.
The FTC’s new rules are designed to ensure consumers have access, at a minimum, to the information they need to understand their options for participating in a small or micro-small-business plan.
As a result, consumers should review all information on the websites and plans they are considering to make sure they are getting all of that information.
