Section 51.051 of the Texas Business & Commerce Code requires the principal seller of a business opportunity to register the business opportunity with the Office of the Secretary of State before selling or offering for sale a business opportunity. If the seller claims an exemption from registration under 51.003 (b)(8) of the Business & Commerce Code, the seller before offering for sale or selling a franchise in this state must file a notice of exemption with the Office of the Secretary of State.
