Managing business licenses is a tricky but crucial part of doing business. Most enterprise operations require a set of business licenses to be in full compliance.
As the business grows and changes, so do its licensing needs. Even the most diligent internal compliance team faces many challenges in keeping business licenses in compliance.
Throughout the business lifecycle, events occur that require special attention to ensure the enterprise is in compliance with licensing requirements. Examples of these include -
These events often have implications for compliance. For example, some events may call for a business to apply for new licenses. Other events may require the cancellation of existing certifications.
Elements outside the control of an enterprise can also have business license compliance implications.
The landscape of licensing requirements is a labyrinth, with needs varying based on business activities and location, as well as industry. The level of regulation a business faces will also affect its licensing needs, with more heavily regulated industries running into more compliance requirements.
Across the U.S., there are more than 70,000 local, state and federal jurisdictions or licensing authorities, each with its own requirements.
Complicating this is the fact that information such as the appropriate licensing authority and how to contact them, and their requirements and license types, is often hard to find beyond a basic level. Keeping up requires extensive time either spent on online searches or talking directly with multiple government entities.
It’s hard for a growing enterprise to keep track of the myriad of rules and regulations surrounding its business licenses requirements. The potential consequences of missed requirements can be significant.
