Being an entrepreneur means that you have to know something about all aspects of setting up and running a business. Legal issues often require expert advice or services from a lawyer. It is useful to have some background information before tackling many of these. There are many legal issues to consider when starting up a business, ranging from deciding what form the business will take (Close Corporation, Company, etc) to VAT registration and tax issues, to labour law and contract law.

A useful starting point is the Paralegal Advice Website which gives a useful introduction to most legal aspects. For the small business entrepreneur, the sections on Small Business Law, Consumer Law and Labour Law are relevant and worthwhile going through. Click through on the link above. You will find the information useful.
