Business Licenses Q&A: Centralize and Eliminate

Audience Question: Is there a product to centralize and eliminate the every-year-filings of business licenses?

Amanda's Response: Very few states or local jurisdictions offer a multi-year license that would eliminate yearly renewals. Fortunately, we provide a way for companies to track their renewal filings so their licenses don’t lapse and they don’t forget about filing a renewal. We also offer services to track the renewals and we have a whole team of people who take care of the renewal filings for many companies with hundreds of licenses to maintain. The burden of license filings is not getting any easier for companies with stores or product sales nationwide.

Joe's Response: Well, you can’t eliminate the every-year-filings but you can more effectively manage them. Business Licenses LLC provides many different services to assist with the management, outsourcing, and co-sourcing of licenses and filings.

(Author's Note: Business Licenses, LLC was pleased to host a webinar on April 30th, 2014 to discuss emerging trends in business license compliance. During the Q&A, the audience submitted many thought-provoking questions that our panelists didn’t have time to answer. We are going to periodically post those questions to this blog along with answers from the two panelists, Amanda Mattaliano and Joe Vitulli.)
