What is a Small Business Concern?

 A business concern eligible for assistance as a small business is a business entity organized for profit, which has a place of business located in the US., and which operates primarily within the United States or makes a significant contribution to the U.S. economy through payment of taxes or use of American products, materials, or labor.  A business concern can also be a small agricultural cooperative.

Dominance in the field – To meet the small business concern definition, the firm may not be dominant in its field of operation.  That is, it cannot exercise a controlling or major influence on an industry.  As part of its review of a size standard, SBA investigates whether a concern at or below a particular standard would dominate the industry on a national basis.  Thus, a concern at or below the size standard is presumed not to be dominant in its field of operation.
