Avalara Licensing

Get your business licenses and sales tax registration with no fuss

Make registration a snap

Need multiple types of licenses in multiple places? We make it easy to get most non-regulated licenses*, permits, and registrations across the U.S., including state, county, and local licenses.

*Certain industries are highly regulated by government agencies, and often incur greater licensing requirements. Examples include agriculture and animal-related industries, gambling and gaming, education and day care, and explosives and firearms.
