Business License issue BillW 3/12/2009
I am wondering what business license classification a self-employed thermographer falls under. Here in Alaska, a building inspector must have special training and an expensive specialty license, whereas a carpet cleaner who uses an IR camera for deflooding needs just the standard license. What do most self-employed thermographers do with regards special licensing? Thanks

The question is which NAICS code do you use?

Targeting reducing my liability from HI work which puts me on the hook for 4 years!

ok, thanks, that helps, I will keep that in mind. But I am still wondering about the NIACS bus license Code?????????? Anybody have any suggestions? I've contacted the AK State Bus Lic office and the person there was confounded, too.

Set up your company as a Building diagnostics company and advertise as a consulting firm. This will allow you to classify yourself as a consultant and give you time to determine if you want to pursue a state issued license. I would recommend that you get the state license as it will help you and make you more credible to potential clients. Good luck

Great ideas, thanks. The NIACS codes are very specific. I'll see if I can make one of them fit the designations that you recommend. Thanks again, bill.
