General Business: FAQ

When do I need a business license?
Anytime you are conducting a business or offering a service for a fee or sell a product.

How much does a business license cost and what is a checklist?
There are more than 400 different types of business activities or categories. The fee for your business license is determined by the type of business operation. When you receive a Business License List of Requirements list of licensing requirements and a licensing packet, you will have a clear understanding of the cost of your business license and how often it is due.

How do I know which licensing jurisdiction I need to visit to obtain my business license?
The location from which you conduct your business determines the jurisdiction in which you must file for your business license.  If your business is located in the unincorporated area of Clark County, you need to apply for a business license with us. If your business is not located in Unincorporated Clark County, you will want to contact one of the other jurisdictions to obtain your license.  Licensing requirements in the other jurisdictions may be different from that of Clark County.  In some instances, you may also need a Clark County business license in addition to a city business license.

How do I find out in which licensing jurisdiction my business is located?
We have an easy to use Jurisdiction Locater.  Type in the street number and name find out the right jurisdiction. We also have links to the other agencies.
