FAQs

How do I know if I need a business license?

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.

What if I don’t have the right business licenses?

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.
