Business Licenses and Permits

You may need licenses and permits before opening shop, depending on the type of business, where you plan to operate and a number of other factors. Almost all businesses will need a business license. But you might also need a property use permit or a liquor license, to give a couple examples. The "Licenses & Permits" resources in FindLaw's Small Business section will help point you in the right direction.
