One Stop Business Portal

When it comes to economic development, West Virginia means business! The West Virginia One Stop Business Portal is a cooperative multi-agency initiative encouraging business growth in West Virginia by providing a single point of entry for business owners to access state services and complete the requirements for business operations in West Virginia. It combines the resources of the Secretary of State's Office, the State Tax Department, the Division of Labor, and Workforce West Virginia in one convenient online location. 

The One Stop framework achieves greater efficiencies for both business clients and state government agencies. The long term goals focus on streamlining the processes for:

  • Business registrations
  • Filing business taxes
  • Acquiring and maintaining required licenses and permits
  • Unemployment Compensation registration
  • Multiple state agency communication and data sharing

One Stop Business Center

To further enhance the One Stop online portal initiative, West Virginia blazed a trail by opening the nation's first One Stop Business Center to support its online efforts.  Business owners can now take care of their business registration, licensing, tax issues, and unemployment compensation all in One Stop -- the "brick and mortar" companion to the One Stop Business Portal. The One Stop Business Center is also home to a customer call center, providing more responsiveness to customer inquiries.

The One Stop Business Center, located at 1615 East Washington Street, Charleston, West Virginia, includes the following state agencies in one convenient location to help with your business registration and compliance needs:

  • Secretary of State (Business and Charities Divisions)
  • State Tax Department
  • Division of Labor
  • WorkForce West Virginia (Unemployment Compensation)
