Get Georgia Business Licenses and Permits - GA Licensing

Two most asked questions by new small businesses and startup businesses are - do I need a business license and how do I get a small business license? In addition to a business registration and/or incorporating a small business, many Georgia businesses are required to get some sort of operating business license or a business permit from the state of Georgia or from their corresponding county or city in Georgia. Local small business licensing requirements in Georgia may vary from county to county. While some Georgia businesses may need a local (city, county or municipality) business license or a business permit, some Georgia businesses may also need to follow federal licensing requirements. These licensing and compliance requirements are in addition to registering and incorporating your business in Georgia, which you may or may not have already done (if you have not, Incorporate Business in Georgia - Setup LLC in Georgia).

Note: if you follow links from various articles on websites in the blogland where they write up articles as to how you can get business licenses and link to state agencies, you will not get proper answers or advice from most agencies as the staff are not well versed in these issues. Additionally, with regards to business licnesing for certain types of businesses, besides licensing requirements by a state, there may be local and federal licensing requirements. Hence, you may be better off getting an advice package or a form preparation and filing service package.
