Iowa Business Licensing Help

Did you know the state of Iowa does not have a “general” business license? Instead, Iowa regulates the activity of your business or profession. Whether you’re a newly established business wondering how to fulfill your licensing obligations, a contractor looking for registration information, or an existing corporation seeking to expand your business lines or geographic footprint, IASourceLink can assist you.

If you are just starting your business, we suggest reviewing our Starting a Business in Iowa page. Please search through the database below for any and all licensing you may be required to obtain in order to operate your business. For additional business licensing assistance contact Christine Cavil at or toll free at 800.532.1216.
