Frequently Asked Questions

Please look through these FAQs if you’re still unsure about the licensing process. Schedule a strategy session with an attorney so our team can determine which licenses your business may need.

How long does it take to get a license?

Each license has it own timeframe. Some licenses can be secured right away while others can take upwards of a year. The average license usually takes between 3-6 months, so it’s best to prepare for a long wait..

How do I know what licenses my business needs?

There are many tools offered by the government on the federal, state, and local level. The problem is these tools can be difficult to find and even more difficult to understand. Your best bet is to speak with an attorney who can break down all the licenses you will need.

Do Business Licenses expire?

Yes, some do. Not all business licenses expire, but there is a large portion of licenses that will expire over time. The usual lifespan of a license is two years, at which point the license will need to be renewed. Be sure your licenses are up to date!

How much does it cost to apply for a business license?

Business licenses each have their own application fee, as well as additional fees that may occur over the course of the application. There is no standard price for a license. It’s best to have an attorney price out what each license will cost to acquire.
