How Online Submittal and Payments for Business Licensing Can Transform Your Agency

Posted by Tim - 07 May, 2020

Business licenses, permits and tax registrations are issued by federal, state, county and local governments to allow companies to conduct business. The Census Bureau reported that there are approximately 89,000 local government agencies in the United States. Most of these agencies invest a tremendous amount of time and resources processing, issuing and renewing licenses. Having the ability to receive online submittal of applications and processing online payments can increase the efficiency and effectiveness of most agencies.

Online submission of applications and payment processing can be easily automated in the MyGov Business License module. Below are a few of the tools to help:

  • Agency website is connected to Public Portal for simplified citizen engagement
  • Applicants use a secure Collaborator Portal for submittal, payment and renewal
  • Fields on application forms have a defined data collection point
  • File upload fields store supporting documents
  • Custom workflow routes applications to agency colleagues for approval
  • Defined fee schedules and fee estimation tools
  • Billing Manager automatically creates invoices and receipts
  • Integrated payment processing for receiving payments to include credit cards
  • Applicant pays invoice from their secure Collaborator Portal
  • Billing Manager exports receipt details for import to agency accounting software
  • Custom settings manage renewal periods and subsequent applications

A software portfolio which is able to receive online applications and process online payments can lead to increased levels of productivity by:

  • Automating systems for payments
  • Obtaining and centralizing collected data
  • Controlling processes to efficiently handle workflow
