Tennessee Business Licenses and Regulations 101

Business Licenses

As you are already aware of, registering a small business in Tennessee means that you have to conform to state business licenses and regulations to be formally recognized as a legal operating business (LLC, Corporation, DBA, etc.)

There is no universal or statewide license when it comes to business licenses in Tennessee, but rather, it is done on a local level. Since this is the case, Tennessee business licenses applications are done on the county and city levels.

For more details on the different licenses in Tennessee, check the City Applications guide.
