For most businesses, it’s not a question of whether you need a license, but how many you need. Even home-based and online-only businesses often need at least one permit to operate. Your requirements will vary widely based on your location, industry, and activities. We can identify what licensing requirements apply for you.
Failure to obtain the correct business licenses can have far-reaching consequences, including fines, penalties, lien issues, and even forced closures. To avoid these risks, you should identify and obtain all licenses that apply to your business before beginning operations.
Virtually every business must obtain a variety of business licenses, permits and registrations before opening its doors to the public. See how federal, state and local requirements translate into the license requirements for a particular business.
