Permits and Licenses

You’ll probably need a license or permit--maybe several—for your business. In some locations, every business needs a basic business license. But whether or not that is required, your business may need one or more specialized licenses. This is especially likely if you serve or sell food, liquor, or firearms, work with hazardous materials, or discharge any materials into the air or water.  There are licensing and permit requirements at all levels of government—federal, state, regional, county, and city. It’s not always easy to discover exactly what licenses and permits you’ll need. But it’s very important.  

You should thoroughly research this issue before you start a business, complete the purchase of a business, change locations, or remodel or expand your operation. If you don’t, you may face huge expenses and hassles.
