Home Business Regulations

Posted on

A home business is usually defined as a small company that runs from the home office of the entrepreneur. It can also be called a work-from-home business. On the Internet there are many types of home business opportunities. In addition to geographic location, home companies are often defined by having only a handful of employees, usually all direct family members of the entrepreneur, and so it is also sometimes a work-from-home business.

There are many small home businesses that can be classified as home offices. Some examples of home-based businesses include web design, data entry services, article writing, copywriting, data entry, medical transcription, financial consultation, legal transcription, bookkeeping, manufacturing, assembly, marketing research, graphic design, video production and many other types of independent work. Home offices can be for many reasons: as full-time jobs, part-time work, as hobbies, or just for storage space.

As mentioned above, most home-based businesses are run by one person, with one or two employees. But for the more successful home-based businesses, there are several levels of home offices, from a home office just for computer use, through multiple home offices for employees working in multiple locations, like one in the home, one off the road, etc. A home office is an important part of a company. For some types of home-based businesses, like medical transcription, all employees need their own equipment. For others, like data entry and other types of clerical and administrative work, individual computer use is fine.

The home-based businesses that are run primarily from home offices are often referred to as “on-site” businesses. These businesses, including web design and development, management and administration, accounting, marketing and customer service, are run from home. Most of these businesses pay their employees in some way. They may be paid hourly, salaried, commission, or something else. So even though home-based businesses may have no offices at all, they still must report to the government with their tax information. That means that if you run a home-based business from your home, you are really a “work from home business” as much as you would be if you had an office and paid yourself (or your employees) salaries at the same time.

But home based businesses also run primarily from home business offices that are off-site. Many communities have zoned residential areas for home businesses and bars and restaurants and other retail shops, but often have “daycare zones,” where families with children can go to have activities. Zoning for these businesses needs to be altered often in order to allow for daycare, so a community planner needs to be involved in these areas. Community members are very concerned about the quality of education and the infrastructure provided by the public schools in their community and especially in their children’s schools, and they want to provide an adequate infrastructure for daycare and bars and restaurants so that the children of their community can enjoy life near quality education. Community members are also concerned about the quality of trash pickup, graffiti removal and other aspects of community life.

Home-based businesses that exist solely off the property are subject to a different set of considerations when it comes to zoning laws and regulations. In most cases, the owner of such a business will not be considered a landlord or a homeowner, therefore the zoning laws don’t apply to them. They may be a “service provider” instead, but they still are subject to homeowners association fees. In fact, they may even be required to obtain a special permit from the homeowners association in order to run their business. However, there are still zoning laws applicable to such home-based businesses, and these laws are typically considered by the courts when determining if there is any interference with a home’s right to privacy.
