Business Answers, a program of the Maine Department of Economic and Community Development, exists to assist new and prevailing businesses with start-up and expansion. In conjunction with the online service, there is also a toll-free 800-line which you can call and get answers to all of your questions, including:
- starting and operating a business;
- State licensing requirements;
- your business name;
- becoming an employer;
- being self-employed; and
- so much more!
If the answer to your business question is immediately unknown, you will be referred to someone who can better help. Through Business Answer’s One-Stop Business Licensing Center, information is available with respect to all of the State licenses your business is required to have. Governor’s Account Executives are available to help with problems and concerns that arise as you work with other State agencies.
