Are you a licensed shop11/23
I am starting a shop in the Denver, CO suburbs. Are you or the shops you work in, state and/or city licensed to work there?
Different states, different laws, here in CT, there is no such a think as license for a cabinet or woodworking shop. there is Home Improvement license, you send a check for $70 and your business info, and they send you a 5" x 8" card that you can hang on your office. Seens useless, i have one for over 15 years, never used.
Calif requires a license and workers comp.
Have to have this to hold the customer accountable via a mechanics lien.
In TN you have to have a business license. I don't believe any state would allow someone to open a business without a license. The state and local entities want a part of the profits.
We also have to get local business licenses wherever we work and pay the mill tax. Most the GC's ask for the local license before they pay you, this is pretty common nationwide.
Business license, county or city - common for most of the country both where your plant is and if you install out of town, generally need business license where you deliver and install.
Contractor licenses- need to install in a lot of states.
Local air quality permit, dust, dust collection ,coatings, sanding sawing.
You probably have to get a city license for the city your shop is in.
I wouldn't bother to get a city license for the city a job is in unless you are forced to by the GC.
I would get a state license otherwise you will likely lose lien rights, if you are installing, which for me is more often than not.
