Starting a Business: Licenses & Permits
Home :: Business Services :: Business Services Center :: Starting a Business :: Licenses & Permits


Once you have determined the purpose, type, name and structure of your business, you must find out if a license or permit is required. Many businesses require one or the other. To operate without one may be illegal.

A license is a privilege granted by a legislative body, at its discretion. A permit is a right that anyone can obtain if the requirements of the granting agency are met. Licenses and permits may be granted at the town, city, county or state level.
