Find Business License Requirements

Determining the types of licenses that you may need to start or expand your business can be an overwhelming process. When operating a business in Colorado, you’ll need to register at the federal, state, and local level. Check out the Colorado Resource Book for registering tips. We also recommend that you reach out to your local municipality to determine industry license requirements.   

The Colorado SBDC also recommends using the Occupational License Database to help simplify the process.

Occupational License Database

Through the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade, the Colorado SBDC maintains a database containing state and federal regulations for businesses in the state. Additional city regulations may exist, so be sure to check with your local city or county clerk licensing department.
