ASK THE BUSINESS LICENSE GURU

By David Yount

Question:

“I need an energy broker license in a couple states in the north. What states do you have experience in? Also what is the cost per state to file for a license? What is your fee?”

Answer:

Energy brokers licenses are required in 13 of the 50 states. The renewal dates and application fees vary as do the length of the application process. Different states require copies of various documents pertaining to your organization and in some states you are required to obtain a surety bond.

Certain states might not require an energy broker license but could require you to obtain a basic business license to do any type of business in the state. You might need to apply for sales and use tax and if you have employees, you will need to set up withholding tax and possibly unemployment insurance.
