Ohio EPA improves free help for small businesses

Small businesses in Ohio have access to a new tool from Ohio EPA that can help identify whether environmental permits, licenses or registrations are needed. The Agency's improved and updated Permit Wizard is now available to help new businesses get started on the right track with proper permits; existing businesses also may use the Permit Wizard anonymously as a way to check on whether they still have the right permits for their operations.

Business identity theft, or corporate or commercial identity theft, occurs when a business's identity is used to transact business and establish lines of credit with banks and/or vendors.
