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, retail businesses of all sorts including beauty supply stores, toy stores, clothing shops, photography businesses and general merchandisers need licenses and permits. In most cases, retail businesses take relatively few licenses – however being registered for all state and local taxes is important as is having any needed general business licenses.
