The 2017 edition of “A Guide to Starting a Business in Minnesota” is now available from the Small Business Assistance Office at the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED) in St. Paul. The popular guide, which is now in its 35th edition and free of charge, provides a concise summary of the major issues faced by anyone starting a business in Minnesota.
The guide includes information on the newly revised Limited Liability Company Act, which changes Minnesota’s current corporation-based model to a partnership model found in about 38 other states. The new model provides flexibility in areas like the standards of conduct required of Limited Liability Company members, managers and governors.
This edition contains three major sections:
- Expanded Resource Directory, including addresses, telephone numbers, and email addresses of organizations referenced in the text; and
- Directory of Licenses and Permits, which lists business licenses and permits required by the state of Minnesota, the state agency that issues or administers the license or permit, and a phone number for obtaining more information.
