Abstract from DBPedia
    Business is the activity of making one's living or making money by producing or buying and selling products (such as goods and services). Simply put, it is "any activity or enterprise entered into for profit." Having a business name does not separate the business entity from the owner, which means that the owner of the business is responsible and liable for debts incurred by the business. If the business acquires debts, the creditors can go after the owner's personal possessions. A business structure does not allow for corporate tax rates. The proprietor is personally taxed on all income from the business. The term is also often used colloquially (but not by lawyers or by public officials) to refer to a company. A company, on the other hand, is a separate legal entity and provides for limited liability, as well as corporate tax rates. A company structure is more complicated and expensive to set up, but offers more protection and benefits for the owner.

    企業(きぎょう、英: business)とは、営利を目的として一定の計画に従って経済活動を行う経済主体(経済単位)である。社会的企業を区別するために営利企業とも言う。家計、政府と並ぶ経済主体の一つ。国(中央政府)や地方公共団体が保有する企業を公企業(こうきぎょう)、そうでない企業を民間企業(みんかんきぎょう)という。通常は企業といえば民間企業を指す。日常用語としての「企業」は多くの場合、会社と同義だが、個人商店も企業に含まれるので、企業のほうが広い概念である。 広義の企業は、営利目的に限らず、一定の計画に従い継続的意図を持って経済活動を行う独立の経済主体(経済単位)を指す。 2016年(平成28年)現在、日本の企業数は約385万社で、法人は約187万社、個人経営は197万社である。99.7%は中小企業で、労働者の3分の2は中小企業に勤めている。また100年以上続いている企業は約2万6000社ある。

    事業者(じぎょうしゃ)とは、事業をおこなうもの。日本の国税法令等での「事業者」とは、個人事業者(個人事業主、 事業を行う自然人)と法人や団体を指し、事業とは、同種の行為を反復、継続、独立して行うこと、としている。単に業者(ぎょうしゃ)ともいう。 類義語に、事業主体(じぎょうしゅたい)があり、これは特定の事業を進行する際に、主となって事業を推し進める組織体を指す用語である。また、事業主というのも事業を経営する自然人や法人・団体を指すが、労働関係の法令では使用者(経営者)側を意味する用語である。
