What is a Business License? Do I need one?

Business licenses are required for businesses to operate in a given location. The type and location of the business will determine the requirements and licensing fee.

Local government agencies can issue a fine or close a business operating without a license. Each state has its own business license process and registration.

Business license from your city does not permit the licensee to violate any existing regulatory or zoning laws of the state, county or cities, nor does it exempt the licensee from any other license or permits that may be required by law. You will also need to make sure to have any other necessary professional license along with your city business license to operate your business lawfully.
