Starting + running a business is complicated, but we've got your back.

South Carolina's Business One Stop's (SCBOS) mission is to be the one-stop information resource for starting, running, expanding, and relocating businesses in South Carolina.



We know business owners are busy, so we’re here to help you avoid the runaround. Created by the South Carolina Legislature back in early days of online account management, SCBOS started as an online portal for managing business accounts with various state agencies. As technology changed and agencies began offering their own online portals, SCBOS evolved into an informational resource for new and existing business owners. Why? Because starting, running, and growing a business is hard work 


We’re your partner on this journey. Our website and live helpdesk (available by phone, email, or chat) were created for you, boss, and we’re ready to help


We're committed to:

  • Keeping it real. We are real, actual humans, answering calls, chats, and emails from our office in Columbia, South Carolina. 

  • Keeping it friendly. Starting and running a business means navigating stress and red tape, so we deliver the friendly, helpful service you deserve.  

  • Keeping it accurate. We provide fast, accurate answers that you need to avoid the runaround and get back to business.
