Licenses

Types of Licenses
The Deputy City Clerk division oversees the various licensing activities including regulation of business (occupational), craftsman, alcohol and liquor dispensing licenses.

Business Licenses
Any business operating or providing a service in Liberty is required to have a Business (Occupation) License. The license is required before a business can begin operating. This requirement applies to business entities regardless of their size or composition:
  • Any Other Type of Business Structure
  • Association
  • Company
  • Corporation
  • Individual
  • Partnership
A few professions, which are licensed by the State, most notably doctors, dentists, and lawyers, do not require business licenses.

To verify if you need a business license, contact the Deputy City Clerk’s division at 816-439-4417.
