Permitting a beauty salon


I’m opening an eyelash salon in NY. I know that I need a business license, sales tax certificate, esthetic license (I have), Business insurance, LLC (I have) what else do I need to submit?

You’d need to get that question answered by an attorney who advises businesses in your city. This is because there are local (city) ordinances.

You might also find a library with a small business information center, chamber of commerce business development mentors, etc. Such an organization might offer advice or publish a list of laws that need to be complied with at various government agencies. has a bookstore of self-help law books. Here is the link to the small business titles:

You can also use’s free online Legal Research tool to check for online guidance. Search, for example, start a business in __________ (name of the city).

Many accounting practices offer business advice beyond taxes. A CPA or Enrolled Agent with an entrepreneurial spirit can also help point you to some of the places your need to register, file reports with, etc.

Hope this helps!
