Iowa Business Licenses

Iowa does not have a basic business license requirement. Business may need to register with the Iowa Department of Revenue for Corporate Income Tax, Sales Tax, Use Tax or Withholding Tax, depending on their business activities. The Iowa Workforce Commission administers unemployment tax accounts which may be required if the business has employees in Iowa, as well as other types of licenses including contractor registration, amusement permits, and employment agency licenses.
