Helping businesses learn about Iowa licensing requirements

Iowa does not have a “general business license.” Licensing and other compliance requirements are based on the nature of a business or professional occupation. For more information on the legal requirements for Iowa businesses, visit the Business License Information Center

To identify licenses that may be necessary for a specific business, search the online license database at the Business License Information Center.
