City Resources


​Most cities and towns have a Chamber of Commerce that works to help small and new businesses get off the ground as well as promote existing businesses. 


To find a SCORE Mentor in your area, look for your county and click on the link to be taken to their chapter homepage.

 

Check the Partner Page for more information on the SCORE community and how they can help.

There is no single all-encompassing state business license; however, nearly all municipalities in the state require a business license. The business will need a local business license in most of the municipalities where business is physically located and conducted. 


Example 1:
If a business is physically located in the City of Columbia and does business in the Town of Irmo, business licenses are required from both Columbia and Irmo.  Home-based and online businesses are required to have business licenses.
 
Example 2: 
If the business is physically located in or conducts business in the unincorporated (non-city limit) area of a county, the business will need a county business license if that county is one of the 9 counties that issues business licenses.
Example 3:
If the business has a food truck or is a contractor based in the unincorporated area of Richland County (which requires a business license) and conducts business in the City of Columbia, the business would need a Richland County business license and a City of Columbia business license.
