Information on State/County Business Licenses

      

State/County business licenses are valid for one fiscal year October 1st through September 30th.  Business Licenses must be renewed by November 1st to avoid penalties and interest charges.

Licenses are issued in accordance with The Code of Alabama, 1975, Title 40, Chapter 12.  

Most licenses must be obtained in the county where the business is located. However, some business types are exempt and are not required to be licensed by the State/County. A determination of exemption may be made by the Business License Section of the Probate Office.  You may research license requirements by accessing the Business License Handbook.
