Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey launches 1-stop business portal for owners

PHOENIX — Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey announced Thursday the launch of a one-stop business portal for entrepreneurs to grow their business.

The Arizona Business One Stop, which launched in partnership with the Arizona Department of Administration, aims to make the process for expanding or starting a business simpler by bringing the process to a centralized site, Ducey’s office said in a press release.

Advertised as being secure, digital and personalized, the system also provides guided checklists, a streamlined application process and an automated cost estimator.

“One of the top priorities of my administration has been making Arizona the best place in the nation to do business,” Ducey said in the release.

“We’ve eliminated or improved burdensome regulations, lowered taxes for more Arizonans to keep their hard-earned dollars and created a top-rate business environment… Now, with this streamlined interagency process, starting a business in Arizona has never been easier.”

With the creation of the portal, more updates will arrive in the coming months, including managing out of state and foreign businesses.

The Business One Stop consolidation was led by the Department of Administration, which brought together the secretary of state’s office, the Arizona Corporation Commission and the Arizona Commerce Authority to create the portal.

“Arizona has become known as a great place for business, and Business One Stop will be a game-changer for those looking to get started,” Rob Woods, Arizona Department of Revenue director, said in the release.

“It provides a simpler and smoother way to set up your business and takes a lot of the guesswork out of the process.”
