Do I need a business license?

The County does not require a business license.  We do however require a Home Occupation Application to be completed and submitted for review.  

This application will help us to determine whether the occupation desired is permitted for the zoning district of your property.

If the property in question is located within the Town limits, of either Pamplin or Appomattox, you must contact that office to inquire on requirements.

You may also want to contact the Clerk of Circuit Court's office to inquire on any regulations they may have on registering your business name.

Another thing to consider is if your business is providing a service to another person or company, a contractor's license may be required.  In which you would contact the Department of Occupational Regulation (DPOR)
