What do I need to do to obtain a business license?

Most Arkansas businesses will be required to obtain a license. Review Business Startup – Licenses and Permits for a basic overview of requirements. For more information, contact your local city or county clerk’s office.

Some occupations and industries in Arkansas further require specialized licenses and permits. For example, restaurants must seek approval from the Arkansas Department of Health. Contact the governing board or agency that oversees your particular occupation/industry.
