Human Resources Consultants help businesses comply with important personnel regulations, improve as employers and make smart strategic HR decisions.Even a consulting firm of one is a business. Many consultants operate out of their homes and make the mistake of assuming they can run their businesses license-free. However, most cities and states require business tax registration and licensing for all businesses, of all sizes – and some require Home Occupation Permits for home-based businesses.
Sarasota welcomes entrepreneurs to its white sand-lined shores. City and county licenses are kept at a bare minimum while most regulation is performed by Florida. Local entrepreneurs operating food, education, and certain personal service businesses face the most regulation. Additionally, local businesses pay license fees to state, county and city governments. Sarasota's economy is fueled largely by tourism, the arts and spending by retirees which in turn has fueled real estate development and construction. The beautiful, tropical community is known for its theater, dance, and music companies. Sarasota does not have many other major industries.
