Simplifying Your Licensing Needs & Saving You Time
BizFilings believes business owners are successful when they can dedicate all their time and energy to their company rather than getting sidetracked researching the nuances of licensing requirements.
There are many federal, state, local and even regional licensing that may apply to your business. In most states, businesses (whether a sole proprietorship or an incorporated business type) need licenses and/or permits to operate and comply with government mandates for safety, soundness and tax.
Failure to comply with license and permit requirements can lead to pricey penalties or leave business owners with no legal protection. These requirements vary by industry and also depend on how business is transacted and where the business is located which is why BizFilings’ Business License Application Package is essential to staying on top of your licensing needs. Let us handle the research, so you can make the decisions.
NOTE: You cannot incorporate your business through this service, but you can register your business with our formation packages.
A common misconception is that the obtainment of licensing turns your company into an LLC, corporation, or other official entity with the state. If you'd like to incorporate, visit our Incorporation Options page.
