Helping Businesses Learn About Iowa Licensing Requirements

Iowa does not have a “general business license.” Licensing and other compliance requirements are based on the nature of a business or professional occupation. For more information on the legal requirements for Iowa businesses, visit the Business License Information Center

IASourceLink provides an easy-to-search database of all licensing requirements through the Business License Information Center. Through IASourceLink, more information can be found on additional licensing that may be needed to operate a business through their "Start a Business in Iowa Guide."
