Obtain a Business License

Obtain a Business License

Identify which type of business entity for your company's registration.

Contractors must provide proof of Worker's Compensation Insurance before obtaining a business license.

Complete the business license application form from the Commissioner of the Revenue's Office. A fee based on your business's first year's anticipated revenue will be charged. The fee varies depending on the type of business. At the end of the first year, the fee will be adjusted, based on actual revenue. In succeeding years, you will be taxed on the preceding year's receipts. All business licenses must be renewed by the first of March each year.

Complete the required checklist, and obtain a business license from the Commissioner of the Revenue's Office. Contact the Office at 540-772-2050.

NOTE: Please check with each office to determine if a fee is required.
