Secretary of State, Commercial Division

GeauxBiz.com is a licensing information center provided by the Louisiana Secretary of State (SOS)for prospective small business owners. GeauxBiz.com gives current and potential business owners a place to go for licensing information needed to start a business in Louisiana.

One of the innovations provided by GeauxBiz.com is providing small businesses with the state's licensing liaisons. Every state agency that deals with business or licensing designates an officer or employee to serve as its business licensing liaison. The primary purpose of the program is to facilitate business by providing a central system for the determination of what licenses and permits must be obtained and maintained by individuals conducting business in the state.

GeauxBiz.com provides a central point of contact for state government requirements. It also directs the individual to the proper local licensing and taxing authorities, as well as to state and quasi-governmental agencies, by providing a customized licensing/permit checklist.
