WHAT TYPE OF LICENSE DO I NEED?




Note: A Business License is NOT a Seller's Permit License, a Business Name Certificate, a Corporation or LLC, a Federal Tax ID Number, or State Employer Tax ID EIN.

As discussed, if you sell or buy wholesale or sell retail, you need a seller's permit in addition to a business license.

At any rate, for your business license, you don't need a specific license for your type of business (in 99% of the cases). You just need a BUSINESS LICENSE because you are a business.
.
For example, you don't need a clothing, cleaning, jewelry etc., business license. You just need a GENERAL BUSINESS LICENSE because you are a business regardless of whether your business is a consulting firm, a retail store, a repair shop, a handyman or whatever it is.

The treatment and tax may change for your type of business but the name of the license you need is "business license," because you are a business.

Thus, regardless of your business type, you will need this license in addition to other licenses and tax registrations you may need as discussed on this site. For example, you also need a seller's permit if buying wholesale or selling wholesale, and all businesses need a federal tax ID number.

In addtion, all businesses must file a certificate for its entity because that is how an entity is created. For example, if you choose to be an LLC, you will need to file an LLC certificate and obtain an LLC operating agreement ( included with our LLC filing service ).
