The State of Colorado does NOT have a general business license. However, many cities and counties require a local general business license. You will want to check with your local jurisdiction for their particular requirements.
If your company delivers goods and/or services to many locations, you should check with the city/county clerk you are going into to determine which, if any, local licenses apply to you. This becomes essential for MOBILE BUSINESSES such as LOCKSMITHS, CONSULTANTS, MOBILE WINDSHIELD REPAIR, CONSTRUCTION COMPANIES, DOOR-TO-DOOR SALES, CATERING, etc.

NOTE:  See RETAIL BUSINESS for more information on Sales Tax License requirements.
NOTE:  See EMPLOYEES/INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS for questions regarding an employer identification number (EIN), unemployment insurance, workers compensation, and other employee-related requirements.
NOTE:  See the Legal Structure chapter of the Colorado Business Resource Guide.
