States regulate many aspects of business by requiring
you to obtain a professional license or special permit
in specific areas before you can open a business.
For example, if you want to start a business that
provides Child Care services, you will have to obtain a
professional license from the respective state where you
want to provide the service. If you want to open a bar
or a restaurant that serves alcohol, you will first have
to obtain a liquor license.
Professional Licensing and permit requirements differ
from state to state. Some states require
professional licensing in hundreds of areas while others
only require it in a few areas.
Starting a business without the proper professional
licensing could result in heavy fines, imprisonment and
being barred from doing business in the state.
