Tips and Advice for Starting a Small Business

Starting a small business may seem daunting, but you don't have to do it alone. We’re here to assist you by offering time-saving small business services so you can focus on what’s important to growing your business.

One of the first steps in creating a business is sending paperwork for the business formation and licenses or permits you may need. Whether you need to get your documents notarized, faxed or scanned, The UPS Store can help you move the process along. You can also make copies of important paperwork, or securely shred documents you no longer need.

Our business mailboxes are a great way to provide your business with a real street address, as well as a central location from which you can pick up mail and packages in order to simplify running your business.

We also have exclusive offers from small business solutions providers to help you with financing and business plan development.

After your business is up and running, you'll also want to market your business in order to reach potential customers. Luckily, we can help with that too!
