The Small Business Administration, which operates Business Gateway, has added an application to the Web site intended to help businesses determine license and permit requirements. The tool was launched in response to feedback from its users in the business community.

The new “Permit Me” feature, launched as a beta, is intended to be a single source for obtaining federal, state and local permits and professional licenses for businesses. Every business in the United States is required to obtain a permit, professional license or identification number to operate. While some states offer assistance to help individuals understand local permit and license requirements, not all provide information on federal requirements.

SBA officials also have expanded the content on Business.gov and added context for the information contained in its compliance guides. SBA launched Business.gov in 2004 in a partnership with 21 agencies as part of President Bush's management agenda. The site was re-launched in October 2006 in response to feedback provided by test groups.
