If the triple S of business's bothers you, you can rewrite: the X of the busines. Or you can say something like "the organization's X" instead.
Please note (both of you) that proper English sentences require proper capitalization and punctuation. There's not much point in getting worried about ss' or ss's if you're not going to pay attention to those points as well.
AnonymousThe OWL resource that you cite says that using an apostrophe with no "s" is also acceptable. So, based on that, it would be acceptable to talk about a business' attributes.It isn't.
Anonymousproper English wouldn't have a 'z' in organisationIt's an American spelling. We try not to be so parochial on this forum.
