User: for research purposes the small businesess administration sba defines small businesses as companies with up to employees

Weegy: SBA defines a small business concern as one that is independently owned and operated, is organized for profit, and is not dominant in its field. [ Depending on the industry, size standard eligibility is based on the average number of employees for the preceding twelve months or on sales volume averaged over a three-year period. Examples of SBA general size standards include the following: Manufacturing: Maximum number of employees may range from 500 to 1500, depending on the type of product manufactured; Wholesaling: Maximum number of employees may range from 100 to 500 depending on the particular product being provided; Services: Annual receipts may not exceed $2.5 to $21.5 million, depending on the particular service being provided; Retailing: Annual receipts may not exceed $5.0 to $21.0 million, depending on the particular product being provided; General and Heavy Construction: General construction annual receipts may not exceed $13.5 to $17 million, depending on the type of construction; Special Trade Construction: Annual receipts may not exceed $7 million; and Agriculture: Annual receipts may not exceed $0.5 to $9.0 million, depending on the agricultural product.
