These resources will help you start your business.

Business Licensing

Most businesses formed in Virginia will need a local business license. You can obtain a license from the city or county where the business operates. The SCC does not provide business licenses. Visit the Commissioners of the Revenue of Virginia Association to learn more.

In addition, certain business types may require an industry license or permit (e.g. contractors, insurance agencies, realtors). You will need to contact the responsible agency.
