Nevada and Las Vegas are great places to own and operate a small business.
Highlights of this year’s survey include:
- More than 81 percent of those surveyed believe Nevada’s economy is headed in the right direction. That was roughly 10 percent more than those who said the same about the national economy.
- The top concerns for businesses continue to be healthcare costs, government regulation and business taxes—while their biggest challenge is hiring and retaining quality employees.
- Nearly 3 in 5 respondents believe Nevada’s business environment has gotten better over the past year. In addition, more than half (53.5 percent) of small business respondents saw increases in their business revenues or sales over the past 12 months.
