New, online portal will make registering a new business and obtaining licenses for it a one-stop experience
It’s now up and running and welcomes everyone wanting to start a business in Colorado.
Because small-business owners stand to benefit the most, NFIB Colorado was the only business association invited to attend the news conference announcing the official launch of MyBizColorado, which now “provides a single path to interact with multiple state agencies, cutting red tape and expediting the process for a business start-up,” according to the official news release.
NFIB Colorado State Director Tony Gagliardi joined Gov. John Hickenlooper, Lt. Gov. Donna Lynne, and Secretary of State Wayne Williams for the announcement.
Reported the Denverite online news site, one of the many media covering the launch, “The website was endorsed by Tony Gagliardi, Colorado State Director for the National Federation of Independent Business. He helps represents more than 7,000 small business owners. Gagliardi said the new website will give new biz owners a chance to hit the ground running and avoid some of the pitfalls that prompt visits from regulatory bodies. ‘We believe that MyBizColorado is an important tool, a tool to continue to guide us in the future,’ Gagliardi said.”
According to the official news release, “By using MyBizColorado, you can:
- Register for a sales tax license
- Register employees for wage withholding
- Register employees for unemployment insurance
- Find resources to help plan a new business and obtain professional licenses.”
Commented Governor Hickenlooper, “I know the challenges facing start-up businesses. By streamlining the state’s processes, we can remove some of those hurdles. MyBizColorado is another reason Colorado is one of the best places to start and grow a new business.”
Added Secretary Williams, “MyBizColorado demonstrates a common goal to provide the best possible service for the business community. It’s rewarding to see so many agencies sharing a unified commitment to welcome new businesses in our state. MyBizColorado is one website that opens many doors. Instead of a maze, MyBizColorado provides an easy-to-follow road map for starting a new business.”
