- The importance of centralization. You can let individual location managers handle their own licensing, but it’s strongly recommended that they keep their records centralized.
- Understanding your business before searching for your business licenses requirements. You can’t simply call a local government and ask what licenses you need, because they won’t understand your business well enough to come up with all the licenses and permits you may need.
- Finding out that a license in not required is often more difficult than finding out when a license is required.
- Are heavily regulated licenses (such as alcohol) more difficult to renew? The answer may surprise you. Any sensitive license will become a problem when you don’t get that renewal notice. This comes back to the issue of centralization. If you’re not tracking your licenses properly, then you may end up needing to start the license from scratch.
