Question – What licenses/permits are required for online business in Arkansas? Are they the same as a regular business or are their differences?
Our Answer – Licensing requirements for online businesses are largely the same as regular businesses. If you are doing business out of your home, you probably don’t have to register at the local level, but some cities/towns do require home based businesses to register. Check with your city hall or related local municipality to be sure. The other thing you will need to register for is a sales tax permit from the Arkansas Department of Finance and Administration if you are selling property or services that are subject to sales tax. Here is more information about what is taxable in Arkansas and how to apply. The cost for this permit is $50.
