In the process of starting a business, one of many things that need to be done is making sure you have the necessary licenses and permits for your business. Our business law attorney at The Roberts Law Firm can help ensure you are doing all that needs to be done and you are in compliance with all the government's rules and regulations.

The business license or business permit you need depends on the type of business you have, but they all have the same purpose: to identify your business and make sure you are accountable for your actions, to protect the public health and safety, and to keep track of your finances for tax purposes.

If you manage a retail business, you will probably need to register for or get a sales tax license or seller's permit. This lets you collect sales taxes from your customers, which you will pay to the state. Some businesses may need a special permit if there is a risk of contaminating the environment. Examples of those businesses would be manufacturers or small businesses like dry cleaners and film processors. If you own or manage a restaurant, bar, or pool hall, you will also need a permit to serve your patrons alcoholic beverages.
