  • North Carolina Business Consultant Licenses and Permits

    Home to some of America's fastest-growing local economies, North Carolina licenses its fair share of businesses. However, it keeps the process simple and straightforward. North Carolina shares regulatory duties with its counties and cities -- and manages to balance licensing enough to watch out for public safety and welfare without creating a bureaucratic mess.

    In North Carolina, business consultants advise managers and business owners on a variety of issues including strategy, finance, efficiency, and policy. Even a consulting firm of one is a business. Many consultants operate out of their homes and make the mistake of assuming they can run their businesses license-free. However, most cities and states require business tax registration and licensing for all businesses, of all sizes – and some require Home Occupation Permits for home-based businesses.
