If you’re thinking of starting up an online business, it is important to note that you may need a business license. While it may seem simple, there are plenty of different requirements and a myriad of licenses that you may need to consider in order to operate your online business.

Online businesses typically must follow the same or similar legal requirements as their brick-and-mortar counterparts. A general business license must be acquired depending on the nature of your online business as well as the city or county you are based in. You will need to check the U.S. Small Business Association’s list to identify if your business needs this licensing. If you are operating your business from your home, you may need a home occupation permit from your state or local government. If you are operating a food business, you most likely need a health inspection certificate from your state or local government.
