Depending on the type of business you are starting, you might need to seek additional registrations and licenses with Pennsylvania state government. For instance, if your business will provide a professional service, you will need to verify with the licensing body that your professional license is current before registering your business. Your business structure (Sole Proprietorship, LLC, Corporation, etc.) will also determine the number of registrations you will need to complete. To get help with identifying whether you will need special registrations, Contact Us.

If you have questions about registration requirements, visit their Opens in new windowContractor FAQ page or call the contractor helpline at 717.772.2425.
