The state’s “one-stop” portal for Indiana businesses is now up and running.

INBiz—the first phase of the state’s $9.1 million Business OneStop web portal—has launched at The Indiana Secretary of State’s Office intends the website becomes the "single point of contact for businesses as they do business with the state.”

The site aims to streamline much of the bureaucracy that comes with opening a business, including tax registration, securing permits, and paying annual filing fees.

It should save business owners “time and money that can be reinvested into growing and operating their companies," Gov. Mike Pence said in a press release.

Later this year, businesses will be able to access services from the Indiana Department of Revenue and the Indiana Department of Workforce Development through the site, including paying their taxes.

Services will continue to be added to the site “as business owners demand," Secretary of State Connie Lawson said.

"INBiz will be the most comprehensive one-stop resource in the nation,” Lawson said. “It will streamline and expedite the registration and compliance process, reducing the cost of doing business with the state.”
