What business licenses are required to do business in Oklahoma City?

I believe that Oklahoma is perceived as a state with a relatively small amount of business regulations (a relaxed regulatory environment so to speak).  However, even in Oklahoma’s relatively regulation-lite environment, there are still regulations to consider if you are in business.

One example is if you are doing business within the Oklahoma City limits there are a number of occupational or business licenses you must have to be legally compliant.  Below is a list of most of the required occupational licenses and if you are looking for more information consider visiting the City of Oklahoma City’s website.

One more thing to know: The city limits of Oklahoma City are expansive and amorphous indeed the OKC City Limits are large enough to hold the cities of Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, D.C., Pittsburgh, Manhattan, San Francisco, and Miami!

On this blog, I write about and try to answer practical Oklahoma legal questions. My focus and most experience is in estate planning and business issues including Oklahoma non-compete law. I make a living as an attorney in the law firm I founded, Cazes Roberts, PLLC in Oklahoma City. I live in Edmond with wife Amy and my two children, Sam (17) and David (9). We live precisely in the path of where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."
