District Releases Guide for Doing Business in the City

The Washington D.C. Economic Development Partnership this week released its annual guidebook on doing business in the city for companies of all sizes.

The group is charged with attracting new businesses to the District and keeping existing ones. Its 96-page booklet provides tips on starting a business or nonprofit, ways to raise money and advice on working with the District government. It also lists detailed information on business registration and taxation, insurance and financial incentives for locating in the city.

"This administration remains committed to bringing economic opportunity to all corners of the city and providing innovative programs that continue to support the growth of entrepreneurs and businesses in our great city," said Neil O. Albert, deputy mayor for Planning and Economic Development.

About 150 residents signed up to receive the book the day it launched, city officials said. It will also be translated into Spanish in October.

The guidebook can be found at the offices of the Washington D.C. Economic Partnership, and at the city's departments of Insurance, Securities and Banking; Consumer and Regulatory Affairs; Employment Services; Housing and Community Development; and Small and Local Business Development. It is also available at the Enhanced Business Information Center, banks across the city and the offices of the deputy mayor for planning and economic development and council member Kwame Brown.
