Virginia Business License

The Fastest Way to Get Your Virginia Business License

Virginia business licenses are not easy to understand, let alone obtain. Business Licenses, LLC is designed to cut through the clutter and help business owners understand their Virginia (VA) business license requirements.

April 23, 2020 Update: Needless to say, the Coronavirus has dramatically affected economic conditions in Virginia and every other state too. Nevertheless, business owners are still filing for licenses and permits, authorities are still requiring them, and Business Licenses, LLC is still assisting customers with Business License Compliance Packages for Virginia. Business Licenses, LLC’s partners are indeed sponsoring free BLCPs for many qualifying business owners.

December 10, 2020 Update: It's hard to know where you're going to stand when you seek a Virginia business license. There's little rhyme or reason to why some municipalities require a business license in VA and others don't.

The capricious nature of business licenses in Virginia (VA) is especially true on the local level when a business is operating without a physical location. We once assisted a customer operating a Mobile Auto Repair business that needed to provide services in 11 geographically close municipalities. 6 of those municipalities required him to obtain a business license while 5 waived the obligation (without explanation).

Another complication in Virginia is that the state requires every business to obtain a state tax registration. Unlike most states that require this business license only in the event that a business employees a specific number of people or collects sales tax, Virginia requires it of every business. So it goes in The Old Dominion.
