Business Privilege License

  • Business Privilege License

A privilege license is a license requirement of every person, firm, company or corporation engaged in any business, vocation, occupation or profession described in Title 40, Chapter 12, Code of Alabama 1975.

The state and county license(s) is issued by the county Probate Judge or License Commissioner in the county where the business is located. Unless otherwise provided, a license is required in every county where the business is conducted. The Alabama Department of Revenue does not administer municipal licenses. Check with every city office where you are conducting business to verify what licenses are required prior to transacting business. For city contact information visit the Alabama League of Municipalities website.
