Generally, there is no need for any business license when forming an LLC. However, depending on the state and the industry in question, an LLC will need appropriate business licenses when operating. There are many types of license, issued at different levels, from federal all the way down to local town hall. Some states have laws making general business licenses compulsory regardless of the company’s type of business.
In order to avoid any trouble regarding business licenses for your LLC, check with the state government office or consult a corporate service provider like One IBC® to have a list of all potential required business licenses.
Some industries require a federal license. In other words, if an LLC operates in any of these sectors, they need to apply with the federal government for their business licenses:

The business license number is located at the top of the business license certificate or it is usually corresponding with a certain other number issued by the government office during the application process. The business license number can also be looked up at the local business license office using said other number if the certificate is not available.
The type of business license number (also known as a company license number) depends on the city, county or state in question. Most companies, regardless of their size, must register for a business license number and apply for any additional necessary licenses. Some firms need to have a business license number ready before starting their business operation.
In some cases, simply having a tax identification number (such as the EIN) is sufficient. This depends on the type of business, as well as the location in which it is located and operates. Bear in mind, a tax identification number is not the same as the business license number because it is used solely for federal financial purposes.
