SBA Business Licenses and Permits API - SDKs

The Small Business Administration (SBA) strives to act as an engine of opportunity and economic growth in America by providing a variety of programs and support services for both current and prospective small business owners. The Business License and Permit search tool provides developers with a RESTful interface to access a list of federal, state, and local permits, licenses, and registration forms that are needed to legally operate a small business. The search tool will return specific local licenses and permits when available, and will otherwise provide users with the URL's to the websites of official local governmental agencies. Users can search by any combination of category, state, business type, city, or ZIP code to receive data in XML or JSON formats.
