ABSTRACT
The article presents facts about business opportunity. Under the Texas Business Opportunity Act (TBOA), business opportunity has a broader definition than the definition of a franchise under the Federal Trade Commission Rule. A business relationship might be a business opportunity under the TBOA but not a franchise for the purposes of the FTC Rule. A disclosure statement must be filed with the Secretary of State of Texas if a business transaction is determined to be a business opportunity.
