Business Resources

Determining the requirements to start a new business can be confusing and time consuming because so many agencies regulate various aspects to business operations.

These web sites are designed to be an easy to use reference on starting a new business. They include a handbook that outlines the basic requirements for starting a business in the state of Missouri. No matter what type of business you start, there are basic requirements to which all businesses must comply.

If you have questions or require additional information, assistance is available from the Missouri Department of Economic Development's Missouri Business Assistance Center (MBAC), University Outreach and Extension offices located in each county or the Missouri Small Business Development Centers throughout the state.
