Tennessee Business Licenses

There is no statewide basic business license in Tennessee. Businesses may need to register with the Secretary of State or the Department of Revenue for business taxes, sales tax, or payroll taxes. Sales tax is imposed on all retail sales, leases and rentals of most goods, as well as taxable services. The various types of professional and occupational licenses required by the state are regulated by different boards and commissions. Many cities and towns have additional local licensing requirements.
