Small Businesses
A goods producing business in the register is considered small if it has fewer than 100
employees, 50 for service-producing firms.
Individual workers (self employed) such as musicians, or people working in a family
business without pay are considered small businesses.
An unincorporated business operated by a self-employed person (without employees) are
not regarded as businesses.
Small business – an owner-managed business with less than 100 employees

organization business form, and if it sells goods or services.
The most common commercial organization forms of business are sole proprietorships,
partnerships, cooperatives and corporations.

and/or services for sale
