With over 90,000 cities, towns, counties, townships, parishes, and villages, it is an understatement to say that there are a lot of local jurisdictions in the United States of America. With this number of incorporated and unincorporated districts and cities, comes a colossal number of ordinances, laws, and regulations.

These laws do not just impact our residential neighborhoods; businesses must comply with them too. Just as we may need a driver’s license to legally drive on the roads, businesses may also be required to have licenses to operate in these localities. Of course, the question is, how do you know what licenses you need and where?

In some cities and counties, licensing can be straight forward. In some of these jurisdictions, you may not need a license at all! It is all dependent on what the city or county requires for their documentation purposes. 

On the other side of things, some cities and counties are very in-depth and require everything from tax records and gross receipts to insurance certificates. In some jurisdictions, you cannot even begin the licensing process until you can prove you have completed the state licensing requirements (and state licensing is an entire process in and of itself). 

Just when it seems you might have answers to your questions, you seem to form even more questions. As a business, it is fair to assume that you have more pressing matters on your mind like profitability, returns on investment, budgeting, employee and customer satisfaction, business growth, and of course keeping your business running smoothly.
