Licenses and Permits
Chances are good that your business is going to be need one or more permits and licenses to operate legally. In some areas, all businesses need a basic business or occupational license, while some need (like a restaurant) may need several.
And remember that you have several governmental bodies that may require a permit or license, including city, county, state, and national.
If the business operates out of a building — whether commercial or residential — you’ll also want to make certain it is zoned for the use you seek. (And for commercial buildings, make certain it is up to code.)
