It is important to understand and adhere to the regulations of the Federal Government, State and City as you begin your practice. Most cities require a license to open a new business. The licensing process often include inspections, fees and acknowledgement of the rules and regulations for the city and state. Business licenses expire; so if your area requires one, be sure to plan accordingly for its renewal. In Cheyenne, Wyoming, clinicians do not need a business license to begin a mental health private but each city is different. The establishments below are helpful in researching requirements in your city to establish the new business.
- Office of the Secretary of State
- City Clerk Department
- Regional Branch of the Small Business Administration
- Chamber of Commerce
