What legal question can I help you with today? Can you give me a few more sentences about what's going on?
I didn't hear back from you and wanted to provide you with an answer.
The state of Oregon doesn't have a general business license. However, many occupations and business activities require special licenses, permits or certifications from state agencies or boards.
The state of Oregon offers a searchable online license directory, a directory of over 1,100 licenses, permits and certifications.
Cities and counties may require a license for businesses operating in their jurisdictions. If your business is located within the city limits, check city offices to see if a local business license is required. If there is no specific listing for business licenses in your directory, the city hall information number is ***** appropriate initial contact.
Licensing offices for the following cities are:Portland Bureau of Licenses | ***-***-****111 SW Columbia St., Ste. 600Portland, OR###-##-####br> Salem Permit Application Center | ***-***-****555 Liberty Street SE, Room 320Salem, OR 97301 Eugene Building and Permit Services | ***-***-****99 W 10th Avenue, Suite 240Eugene, OR 97401 City of Medford Finance Department | ***-***-****411 W 8th StreetMedford, OR 97501
To check on business license requirements at the county level, contact your county administrative offices. The county planning department or county commissioner's office is a good first contact.Check Zoning for Business LocationZoning Requirements
Be sure the location you choose for your business is zoned for your business activity. Other factors to consider include regulations on business signs and parking at the location.
If you are planning to operate a business from home, determine if there are restrictions on home-based businesses in your area. Your local city or county planning office can provide this information.
