If you are running an adult business or thinking about opening one, you have to deal with certain compliance issues that other types of businesses don’t have to deal with said an Attorney from Monshaugen & Van Huff, P.C.. It is important that you don’t sell any adult items to minors and this means you have to have signage that clearly lets any potential customers know that you have an adult business.
The signage has to be placed on your front door or on your front window so that anyone coming to the door is going to see it and be aware of the nature of the business. If you don’t have this signage or it is located in a place where people might not be able to easily see it, you could end up getting into trouble and you could get fined or even get shut down.
You can’t let people into your adult store who are under the age limit and you can get into trouble if you do which is why you have to be very careful with your signage. You also have to check the identification of everyone who is going to be buying anything from your store. If you sell to someone who is under the age limit you could get into trouble and get fined or your business could even get shut down.
You are going to need to keep perfect records of your sales when you are running an adult business and you need to keep track of who you are selling your products to. Adult businesses often come under extra scrutiny and this means that you need to keep perfect records. You can’t be sloppy because there is a good chance that you could get audited and if you do you are going to get into trouble if your records are not very good.
As long as you have the proper permits and check identification on every sale that you make you are going to be ahead of the game. You should also pay attention to the layout of your store. If you sell adult products for both men and women you should try to make separate areas of the store for both the men and women so that they feel more comfortable. You want the shopping experience to be relaxing and it is often more relaxing when you have music and keep the products well separated.
