One last thing…

Many businesses are required to obtain special licenses or permits to operate or conduct specific business activities.

Some examples: In addition to requiring health professions such as doctors, dentists, etc. to be licensed, Missouri also requires barbers and beauticians, tattoo artists, architects, landscapers, and many others to be li-censed. Refer to the Division of Professional Registration for specific requirements:

Any establishment serving food to the public must meet health standards. Contact your local County Health Department for local regulations.

The Missouri Dept. of Agriculture inspects all scales.

The Dept. of Natural Resources issues permits related to waste and water sys-tems.
