Continuation of Rauner Administration Efforts to Modernize Government

SPRINGFIELD - Applicants seeking a Business License with the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) will now be required to submit and pay for their initial application online via IDFPR’s Online Services Portal. The new online portal enables Medical Corporation, Limited Liability Company or Professional Service Corporation applicants to enter all required information electronically, including attachment of supplemental electronic documents. Once submitted, applicants may monitor their application’s status online as it moves through IDFPR’s review process. The move to an online, paperless initial licensure is part of the Department’s ongoing efforts to modernize the state’s regulatory agency.

“Migrating our initial application process to an online format allows for a mutually beneficial arrangement that affords the added convenience and accuracy of online forms, while providing an added layer of transparency and security,” said Bryan A. Schneider, IDFPR Secretary. “By transitioning away from the paper application, we are able to streamline tasks that, ultimately, allow us to better serve our applicants and licensees with a faster, more modernized regulatory experience.”

In total, there are nearly 8,000 professional business licenses overseen by IDFPR in Illinois. IDFPR’s Division of Professional Regulation currently licenses over 1.1 million professionals in more than 200 license categories throughout the State of Illinois.

Applicants seeking to apply for their business license may do so by visiting IDFPR’s online initial application portal located here.
