Every jurisdiction has its requirements. If your business is in the District of Columbia, a registered agent is a must. D.C. law requires virtually everyone doing business here to have a business license. There are different kinds of licenses, and you will need to submit various kinds of documentation to apply for the license required for you. Before you can apply for a license, you must register your company with the D.C. Corporations Division and with the D.C. Office of Tax and Revenue. We can make this easy for you by helping you organize your preparation and filing the license application for you.
The exceptions to the requirement for a business license are extremely limited. You will need a business license unless:
Your business type is exempt (extremely rare);
You have a current professional license for business activities; or
Your practitioners are required to maintain licensure by a local, state, or national certification body.
