A business license is required to engage in business in the City of Springfield whether you are located within Springfield, or simply conducting business in Springfield. To determine if your business is located within the Springfield City limits, view a City of Springfield interactive Map and search by your address, or see a PDF street map of Springfield instead.
If your place of business is not located within the City limits, but you or your agents will be physically coming into the City to conduct business, call on clients, or provide services, you will also need a Springfield business license. Refer to the list of exempt businesses if you are not sure whether your business requires a license.
