“Question: Is there any small-business certification at the federal level? I’m not talking about woman-owned, minority-owned or disadvantaged small business. Some clients have asked me if mine is a ‘certified’ small business. I have done that in California, but can’t get a straight answer from folks I’ve asked about a federal certification.

Paul: Good news. It’s quite simple to address this. If your business meets the federal-government standard for small business, you can declare yourself to be a small business. You ‘self-certify.’ It’s an honor system.”
– Hey! The Small Business Blog(TM) is a ‘Certified Small Business’, what do you know. It’s always nice to get something for free! -ed.
