When it isn't on your mind, Georgia may be reaching into your wallet. Georgia regulates a fair number of industries and counts on the revenues to help fund the tight-budgeted state. Businesses can expect to obtain a combination of state, county and city licenses.
In Georgia, graphic design and online sales, or e-commerce are common home-based businesses. People looking for flexible lifestyles or just to work from home can usually set up these businesses easily. While in many cities including Los Angeles and New York, only standard business licensing requirements apply, numerous cities and counties require Home Occupation Permits for home-based businesses.
