This is where it all happens. Over the course of starting, running, or expanding your business, you’ll likely need to engage with several of the entities you can easily access through South Carolina Business One Stop (SCBOS). This portal was created by the State of South Carolina to help make the red tape a little less sticky, perhaps.
Noobs, you’ll be happy to know that, in addition to a nine-step guide for starting your business, there’s a live chat available. And this chat is staffed by, as the website says, “like actual real people.” Humans one, bots zero.
After that, what else do you need? Maybe it’s licensing at city, county, or state levels. Or, you have direct links to federal business resources, such as NAICS codes from the Small Business Administration, a virtual marketplace to help generate business.
Workforce? Financing? Franchising? You can find resources for that stuff, too. SCBOS seriously puts some effort into making at least one stop on your journey a little easier.
