Craig Chamber offers guide for new businesses

Daily Press staff

— New businesses and prospective business owners have a lot to learn.

How do they apply for a sales tax license?

Where can they get workers’ compensation insurance?

What kind of city, county, state or federal licenses and/or permits do they need?

Is it better to file as a general partnership, a limited partnership or a corporation?

It can all get a bit dizzying, said Christina Currie, Craig Chamber of Commerce executive director.

So, the Chamber, along with help from the Craig/Moffat Economic Development Partnership, put together a 20-page resource companion titled “Moffat County’s Guide to Business Success” – now available at the Moffat County Visitor Center, 360 E. Victory Way, which can be reached by phone at 824-5689.

The booklet includes information about all the above questions, as well as several others.

Chapters vary from property and income tax levels in Moffat County to where businesses can find certain market analysis and different kinds of financing in the private or public sectors.

There also is a directory of accountants, consultants, attorneys and other service professionals who can help a business get off the ground.

Currie said she has sent the information to local and out-of-town residents. EDP also has requested the information on behalf of local entrepreneurs.

“It was designed to be a starting point for new businesses and those looking to start a new business,” Currie said. “The nuts and bolts of running a business, help with marketing, who are the people to talk to, those are the kinds of things we wanted to include.”
