Every business has the potential to encounter problems with its employees, vendors, contractors, or suppliers at some point in its lifespan. Knowing what signs to look out for, and what questions to ask can stop little problems from developing into much larger ones. Late-paid or unpaid payroll taxes, for example, may be an indication of negligent (or even fraudulent) behavior on the part of an employee or corporate officer. Similarly, when something sounds too good to be true involving your ordinary business operations, it probably is.
