License123 – Streamline the Licensing Process

Without the proper licensing, a business owner could be looking at hefty fines, a suspension of operating privileges, or worse. License123 is an application that guides entrepreneurs through the process of securing the proper licensure for their businesses, and offers a detailed breakdown of all the fees they should expect along the way.

Before you wait in line at City Hall or sit on hold with clerks at your local courthouse, log on to the License123 website and quickly see what licenses or permits you really need to get your business off the ground. Enter your state, city, industry, and business type to get started. License123 will immediately show how many licenses are required for the type of business you’re opening up. To get started acquiring these licenses, you’ll need to pay for License123’s Full Report. In addition to listing which licenses are necessary and providing the appropriate paperwork to fill out, License123’s reports also offer detailed instructions for filling out licensing applications, contact information for the licensing authorities in your area, and detailed timelines that indicate when specific forms are due.

In the event that you can file for a particular license electronically, License123 will provide you with the appropriate links and digital forms. Although License123 does not send out or complete applications on its clients’ behalves, it does offer a number of useful tools for business owners who aren’t sure where to begin when it comes to getting licensed to practice in their local areas.
