Did you know the state of Iowa does not have a “general” business license? Instead, Iowa regulates the activity of your business or profession. Whether you’re a newly established business wondering how to fulfill your licensing obligations, or an existing corporation seeking to expand your business lines or geographic footprint, the Business License Information Center can assist you.

If you are just starting your business, we suggest reviewing our complete how-to guide about starting a business in Iowa. Please search through the database for any and all licensing you may be required to obtain in order to operate your business. If you need assistance, complete the form below or call toll free at 800.532.1216.
