Pennsylvania Unveils New PA Business One-Stop Shop Registration Tool to Cut Red Tape, Streamline Launching a Business

first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Pennsylvania Unveils New PA Business One-Stop Shop Registration Tool to Cut Red Tape, Streamline Launching a Business  November 04, 2019center_img Government That Works,  Jobs That Pay,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf announced that opening a business in Pennsylvania just became easier with the creation of the PA Business One-Stop Shop Registration Checklist. This tool will help small business owners and entrepreneurs more easily access necessary licenses, permits, forms, and contact information personalized for the needs of their company in just a few minutes.“The registration checklist allows entrepreneurs and small business owners to feel confident in the preliminary steps of registering their business, which can be an overwhelming process,” said Gov. Wolf. “The PA Business One-Stop Shop was created with exactly that intention—to take out the guesswork and ensure that resources are collectively available and can be accessed with ease.”The PA Business One-Stop Shop launched last year with the purpose of serving as the sole source for entrepreneurs and small businesses seeking guidance through all stages of business development. From planning and startup to operation and expansion, the Business One-Stop Shop offers resources for entrepreneurs, existing businesses looking to grow, and businesses from other states or countries interested in expansion in Pennsylvania.Before the governor established the Business One-Stop Shop, small business owners and entrepreneurs had to reach out to multiple agencies and organizations for assistance throughout planning, startup, and operation processes. Small businesses employ about half of Pennsylvania’s private workforce, and about 99.6 percent of all businesses in the commonwealth are small businesses.In October 2018, Gov. Wolf announced that the legislature passed House Bill 1284, which codified into statute the Business One-Stop Shop initiative initially proposed in his 2017-18 budget address. The One-Stop Shop quickly built momentum after its launch, generating more than 174,000 unique visits to the website and receiving critical buy-in and support from partners across the commonwealth like Small Business Development Centers.“Governor Wolf tasked agencies with simplifying state government by cutting red tape to bolster business development and growth,” said Department of Community and Economic Development Secretary Dennis Davin. “By streamlining the Business One-Stop Shop process, we are giving entrepreneurs the peace of mind they need to take their business from concept to reality in a personalized, efficient way.”With the support of a team of business consultants and subject matter experts who work collaboratively to pool their resources, knowledge, and experience, the PA Business One-Stop Shop makes all aspects of business development accessible.For more information about the Wolf Administration’s commitment to helping businesses grow and thrive, visit the DCED website or follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and YouTube.last_img read more

Mets’ Zack Wheeler addresses trade rumors: ‘It’s something that you don’t want to think about’

first_img Nationals not thinking about trading Max Scherzer ‘right now,’ general manager says “I don’t think my mindset or the mission statement for this franchise has changed,” Van Wagenen said, via SNY. “It’s been our goal to win now and our goal is to win in the future. So, moves that we make will have an eye towards that. My hope and my belief is that we can be in contention over the course of the next several weeks and can continue to push that gas pedal down.”The Yankees have been linked to a potential move for Wheeler while there could be “four to five” teams interested in him, a major league talent evaluator told the New York Post. “It’s something that you don’t want to think about, but I guess it’s in the back of your head,” Wheeler said. “But I’m here now and I want to help this team win. I know we’re capable of it and we’ve got a good squad.””It’s something that you don’t want to think about, but I guess it’s in the back of your head” – Zack Wheeler on potentially getting traded if the Mets sell pic.twitter.com/eTKKVuf052— SNY (@SNYtv) June 18, 2019Wheeler holds a 5-5 record with a 4.94 ERA in 15 starts so far this season. He has struck out 103 and walked 28 in 94 2/3 innings on the mound. Related News The Mets entered play Tuesday in third place of the National League East with a 34-38 record. They trailed the division-leading Braves by 8 1/2 games and were 5 1/2 games behind the Cubs for the second wild-card spot.“We need to turn things around very quick and I think we’re very capable of that,” Wheeler said. “It starts with the pitching. Just got to bear down, keep runs off the board and have quick innings.”New York, however, won’t necessarily be sellers at the trade deadline, general manager Brodie Van Wagenen said last weekend. Zack Wheeler is trying to focus on the present.The 29-year-old starter is in the final year of his contract and the Mets could reportedly consider moving him if they fall further out of playoff contention. Wheeler addressed the trade rumors when he met with reporters Monday.
