As with most legal questions, the answer is that it depends. For the most part, people are legally allowed to operate a small business from their home. For example, an attorney can operate a law practice from his or her home, since it provides a brick and mortar location to store files. However, other types of businesses may have restrictions, which a home cannot accommodate. For example, you could not operate a restaurant out of your home if it is not zoned for such a purpose. Anyone wishing to start a home business should consult an attorney to determine the restrictions in his or her residential area. —Ahmed M. Soliman, Esq., Soliman & Associates, P.C.
