If you have a routine business need, please read through the text pages on this site to find information to help you start or expand your business. Idaho does not have a state business license. They are issued locally by city clerk's offices.

Note: Results do not populate in the order in which you should contact agencies. Rather, they populate in the order in which you answered the questions in the Wizard (Section 1, 2, etc.).
