Forms, deadlines, and the threat of penalties and interest—keeping up and maintaining business licenses can be both a challenge and a financial drain on your company. That’s why KPMG offers a thorough approach with our  Business License Service. Our dedicated team of professionals has more than 75 years of collective experience and is committed to providing the business license services you require.

Tailored to your business needs

Our automated Business License Service can do as much, or as little, as needed. No matter how much of the burden we support, you’re always in control with continuous access to forms and associated paperwork via our online workflow system. Plus, KPMG offers flexibility to work with a client’s own treasury function or third-party payment provider for remittance of taxes and fees to jurisdictions.

Business license renewal compliance

Let us handle:

  • Creating and maintaining calendars and inventory for all licenses
  • Preparing business license and permit-related filings in a consistent, timely manner
  • Maintaining all renewals and supporting documentation in secure electronic files for easy access by your company’s authorized representatives.

State and local registration and business license applications

We’ll also take care of:

  • Preparing and filing applications in a consistent, timely manner
  • Following up with jurisdictions to help obtain account numbers and information.

Business license consulting and research

From understanding the business license requirements within a new jurisdiction and the application of the statute to the verification or analysis of your license compliance posture, our experienced team is here to help with any business license matter.

In addition to our national business license center of excellence, KPMG has a state tax resource network ready to help with specialists in every state. Our professionals will assist with audits and any complex state and local business license matters that may arise.
