Business Licenses and Permits

Each regulated industry has its own set of rules for obtaining the proper work licenses. It is crucial that you understand and complete all of these necessary requirements when applying for and re-registering your license. Failure to do so could hinder your success and get you in trouble legally.


While similar, licenses and permits are different. Licenses tend to be general and apply to activities that require competence, such as offering cosmetology services, medical services or building homes. Licenses are often awarded after the completion of a test.
Permits focus more narrowly on safety and may require an inspection. For example, running a restaurant requires a health permit which you can get after the facility passes inspection.

Conducting a business or profession without the proper license could jeopardize your career or your business and subject you to investigations, fines, penalties, and even criminal prosecution.
