- Digital portal consolidates information, resources, and requirements from several state agencies
- Tools to assist with taxes, licensing, financial assistance, and more
- Goal of helping simplify processes for business owners and entrepreneurs
Governor Ned Lamont has announced the launch of Business.ct.gov, described as “a one-stop business portal” to help streamline business interactions with state government and simplify complex languages in easy-to-understand language.
Those looking to start a business can find resources on the necessary steps, along with a personalized new business checklist. Companies can also find information on how to manage their taxes, find and maintain licenses and permits, access financial assistance, and build their workforce. The site also includes a Business Reopening and Recovery Center to assist companies in recovering from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The site connects to five state agencies: Secretary of the State, Department of Consumer Protection, Department of Economic and Community Development, Department of Labor, and Department of Revenue Services. The state expects to incorporate more agencies and expand the platform over time.
