Business Licensing

Many cities and counties across North America have a thriving business community. These businesses – small to large – support the local economy by creating jobs, fostering population growth, and in some cases, putting a city on the map.

The BasicGov® Licensing module helps to create efficiencies and reduces paperwork stress for the entrepreneur starting out or the large conglomerate moving in. Our solution helps improve relationships between a municipality and its revenue-generating business community by creating a true platform of engagement.

The BasicGov® Licensing Module enables businesses to apply and renew online at a faster rate, collect licensing revenues on time, improve budgeting and forecasting, and manage cash flow.
