  • District of Columbia Financial Consultant Licenses and Permits

    Because the District of Columbia is a state, county and city all in one, its residents can enjoy fewer regulatory agencies than in other part of the country. Additionally, the District is making efforts to streamline its licensing process, slowly moving application processes online and making forms easier to complete.

    In District of Columbia, financial consultants help firms and sometimes individuals make smarter fiscal decisions. 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.
