How do I get a business license in Georgia?


Every business needs an operating license, which is obtained from the county or city in which the business resides. Please contact your local business licensing office which is generally housed within city hall. Does my business need a professional license? Licensing is an issue where other state and federal agencies come into play – for instance, day-care centers, USDA for certain food issues, etc. It will depend on the specific business.
