Denver Business Licensing Attorney
Helping Businesses Stay Legal for Over 21 Years
To operate a new business legally within the United States, owners must comply with federal, state, and local licensing requirements. In Colorado, business licenses are occupation specific. That means a business is required to obtain one or more licenses that are associated with the services they offer.
If you are forming a new business and are unsure of the licenses you will require, Denver Business Lawyers is here to help. Not only can our legal team inform you of all the licenses you need for your particular business, but we can also handle all the paperwork and filing process for you. When you rely on our Denver business licensing lawyer, you can save time and money, and you can avoid costly mistakes.
When Federal Business Licenses Are Required
One of the questions we often receive is, “Do I need a federal license for my business?” While most businesses do not require a federal license to operate, those that are regulated by a federal agency do.
You may need to obtain a federal license if your business involves:
- Alcoholic beverages
- Fish and wildlife
- Commercial fisheries
- Mining and drilling
- Firearms, ammunition, or explosives
- Nuclear energy
- Radio or television
- Transportation and logistics
The requirements and fees for a federal business license will depend on your business activity and the particular issuing agency. To make sure you are compliant with federal licensing laws, reach out to our qualified business lawyer.
State & Local Business Licenses
Most businesses will require some type of state and local licenses to conduct business within the state of Colorado and their specific town. The particular licenses you will need depend on the nature of your business.
A fundamental requirement for all businesses that will be selling, renting, or leasing tangible property is a sales tax license. This is a requirement for companies that have a physical presence in Colorado, such as having an office, inventory, employees, a store, or a warehouse within the state.
