The auction business application will require one owner be listed under the Contact Information section. This owner will be the responsible owner for the auction business license issued by the Department of Business and Professional Regulation. This owner will be responsible for the Department license and any correspondence made regarding complaint inquiries. Your company can still be set up with multiple owners; however, only one owner will be responsible for the auction business license for any Department of Business and Professional Regulation inquiries.
