Rhode Island Business Licenses

Rhode Island does not have a statewide basic business license. Businesses may need to register with the Secretary of State, or the Division of Taxation for sales tax or payroll taxes. Several different state agencies oversee the many professional and occupational licenses in Rhode Island including the Department of Business Regulation and the Department of Health. Local cities and towns may have additional license requirements.
