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.
