Business License Applications

There are a number of ways you can apply for a City of Springfield business license.  The application may vary depending on the manner in which you operate.  To assist you in choosing which application you should complete, ask yourself the following questions:
  • Will I work out of a commercial location inside Springfield city limits?
  • Will I use my home address as my business address?
  • Do I offer services or solicit inside Springfield city limits, but my base of operations is outside Springfield?
  • Is my only method of operation participating in groups sales events, craft fairs, or farmers markets?
  • Is my only business activity limited to a booth I rent at a local flea market?
