Delaware Business License

The Fastest Way to Get Your Delaware Business License

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

April 23, 2020 Update: Needless to say, the Coronavirus has dramatically affected economic conditions in Delaware and every other state too. Nevertheless, business owners are still filing for licenses and permits, authorities are still requiring them, and Business Licenses, LLC is still assisting customers with Business License Compliance Packages for Delaware. Business Licenses, LLC’s partners are indeed sponsoring free BLCPs for many qualifying business owners.

December 10, 2020 Update: To legally operate a business in Delaware, you need more than a mere business license. There is also a Secretary of State Registration issued by a separate office. In most cases, you need both. But that’s not all, because even a basic business license (at the Delaware state level) requires “endorsements" in order to be valid for your industry. The situation can often get even more complicated from there.

At the city level, a number of industries are heavily regulated. Online home rentals are a good example, since Delaware has such a long coast line that is attractive to vacationers. Consequently, Delaware cities often require renters to obtain special business licenses before they place a home on Airbnb or the like. And that’s just the beginning. It’s important to get your business license research started early.
