The mountainous state of Colorado shares regulatory responsibilities with its counties and cities. While Colorado oversees many major industries such as healthcare, counties license health and food and cities frequently regulate local issues such home businesses. Colorado's centralized licensing system makes obtaining state-level licenses easy and efficient.
In Colorado, household Services such as Housekeeping, Gardening, Landscaping and Auto Detailing may not require as many licenses as food and healthcare businesses, but they must be licensed nonetheless. Businesses that use a person’s home as their official address or office may also need a Home Occupation Permit from their city or county.
