Operating a business? Hiring employees? Selling liquor? If your company would answer yes to any of these questions, then you should be in compliance when it comes to your business licenses.
Business licenses range from health and safety related paperwork to general business licenses that are required for you to run your business at the state, county, and local levels. The extent of business licenses that apply depends on the nature of your business, but just about every business has licensing requirements of some kind.
Falling out of compliance when it comes to business licenses isn’t just a financial cost. Failing to have the proper business license can put your business’ reputation on the line. Avoid putting your business in a risky situation by staying up to date.
This webinar will teach you best practices to get compliant and stay compliant for business licenses across the United States so that nothing slips through the cracks. It will dive into the enforcement of business licenses, so you’ll know what could happen to your business if something goes awry.

While business licenses are not the same as sales tax, they are often assigned to the sales tax department. Business licenses are administered by a state or local authority and can be based on a variety of measurements including sales into the jurisdiction. When we talk about business licenses, we are referring to any type of license or permit that government entities require of businesses in order to conduct business in that location.
Like sales tax, it comes with a lot of detail-oriented paperwork, forms, dates, and other tedious tasks that come with business license responsibilities.
This webinar will address the processes companies should have in place for dealing with business licenses, from start to finish. The webinar will start off with teaching you what types of businesses are required to have business licenses and when businesses are required to get them. Then we will dive into the compliance process including how to file, when to file, and how to find the information you need from states. The webinar will conclude by informing you about liabilities and enforcement for business licenses.
