April 23, 2020 Update: Needless to say, the Coronavirus has dramatically affected economic conditions in Vermont 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 Vermont. Business Licenses, LLC’s partners are indeed sponsoring free BLCPs for many qualifying business owners.

December 10, 2020 Update: Vermont revenues have risen nearly seven percent, which is the strongest growth reported by state legislators in five years. The biggest source of this revenue is personal income tax, up 10 percent compared to 2018 tax numbers. In addition, the Green Mountain State's consumption tax (liquor, sales, hotel rooms, and meals) exceeded 2018's consumption tax rate by almost six percent. What does this mean? Vermont residents and tourists are spending much more money in the state than they did in 2018.

Potential business owners do not need to obtain a general business license in Vermont. However, the state enforces licensing regulation for over 40 professions, ranging from architects and private investigators to accountants and land surveyors. In addition to these licensing laws, many cities and counties enact their own regulations regarding permits and business licenses. Limited liabilities, limited partnerships, cooperatives, and non-profit organizations must register their business with Vermont's Secretary of State Department. Alternately, general partnerships and sole proprietors won't have to register with the Secretary of State unless they operate under trade names.

Obtaining a business license in Vermont demands much of your time researching information about what kind of license you need and if city or county laws require separate licenses.
