Business-to-business (B2B) companies sell a wide range of products, from biotechnology and beverages to aircraft parts and software. A number of business activities are regulated by the government and B2B companies must ensure that they have all applicable federal and state business licenses or permits in order to operate legally.

For example, businesses that import or transport animal products, biotechnology, plants, animals and biologics must obtain a permit from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Similarly, businesses that operate an oversize or overweight vehicles while transporting goods must adhere to U.S. Department of Transportation guidelines and obtain a permit from state governments.

Some states also require specific types of businesses to have licenses and permits, including companies that sell food products. Licenses and permits may be profession or trade specific, while others might be related to environmental and natural resource regulations. Many city and town governments also issue business licenses to companies operating within their borders.

For more information on federal and state business licensing, visit the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) website.
