Arizona Business License

The Fastest Way to Get Your Arizona Business License

Arizona state business licenses are not easy to understand, let alone obtain. Business Licenses, LLC cuts through the clutter to help business owners understand their Arizona state business license requirements.

As entrepreneurial watchers of The Grand Canyon State already know, Arizona is in a state of flux. The population is booming, the economy is expanding, and the state's business license requirements are changing to meet new demands. Where they end up in the long run is anybody's guess, but in the short run, it's crucial for business owners to closely track the business license laws and regulations as they evolve.

The most conspicuous example of change in the regiment of Arizona business licenses and permits happens at the city level and concerns the TPT, otherwise known as the Transaction Privilege Tax. (This tax differs from a traditional sales tax since it is imposed upon the seller of goods rather than the buyer.) The TPT is always levied by the state, but local TPTs can complicate the picture.

Many cities in Arizona impose this tax in addition to standard business licenses upon all businesses that operate within their jurisdiction. It's nearly impossible to say how many, since cities are constantly adopting it while others abandon it in a never ending game of Arizona business license roulette.

But the TPT doesn't just vary by city. It also varies by business activity. If you operate multiple locations in Arizona and each one conducts more than one taxable business activity, the Arizona business license complications will add up. Moreover, all this is on top of local business licenses, which are very common in Arizona.
