Accounting services can be tax preparation services, personal accounting or management accounting businesses. Typically, states regulate such professional organizations, but in some cases cities and counties also require special business licenses for them. Accounting firms are held accountable for their professional conduct and often answer to a state accountancy board.
Jacksonville, Florida is the physically largest city in the nation. Luckily, its regulatory authority doesn’t sprawl as wide as the city itself. Jacksonville residents can expect a lot of licensing from the state, but not too much from the city. Still, food and other health-related businesses must meet local standards and require licenses and permits. Jacksonville remains one of Florida and the East Coast's largest ports. The city is a center of international trade and is the largest point of entry for vehicle imports. However, Jacksonville is not a one-industry town and also contains distribution, financial services, biomedical technology, consumer goods, information services, manufacturing, and insurance.
