In America's heartland, Nebraska has long been a successful agricultural state. In recent years, Nebraska has developed a larger business presence with Omaha being listed as one of the friendlier places in the country to live and work. Nebraska keeps business regulation fairly light - making it so that businesses have relatively few business licenses and permits required. Still, certain industries including healthcare and agriculture have more involved business licenses and compliance measures.
In Nebraska, alcohol Distributors sell alcoholic beverages to retail establishments. Accordingly, states give them separate and generally lower license fees than alcohol retailers who sell or serve directly to the public. Distributors also require federal licensing and may need local business licenses and wholesale permits.
