The law and ebusiness
The Business IT Guide is a free online source of advice for smaller businesses. As part of a continuing relationship with AccountingWEB, we present its introductory legal guide to online business. Further articles can be found on the Business IT Guide partner page.
The web can be a wild place to trade in, and a number of businesses have found to their cost that simple mistakes can escalate into significant business threats in a short period of time.
This guide is designed ensure small businesses are aware of their legal obligations and adhere to respective laws. However, the guide does not constitute legal advice. If you are planning to undertake commercial activities on the web, you should also seek formal legal advice.
