The Peachtree Corners City Council recently approved an amendment to an existing ordinance requiring all businesses operating within the city to display their occupational tax certificates in a prominent place within public view.

Occupational tax certificates are also referred to as business licenses. “The amendment brings the city current with standard practices for municipalities,” said Peachtree Corners City Manager Brian Johnson.

“As a general rule, it is always good business practice for businesses to post their licenses for public viewing,” added Johnson. “Posting your license for the public assures your clients and customers that you are legitimately licensed.”

To operate a business in Peachtree Corners, including a home-based business, you must have a current occupational tax certificate. Other permits and licenses may also be required, depending on what type of business you plan to operate.

The new ordinance also requires occupational tax certificates must be shown to any appointee of the city upon request. Information:
