Business Licenses and Permits

One of the first steps in starting a business is researching what business licenses and permits are required. In addition certain business types obtain certificates or register with the County. 

Montgomery County government issues certificates for certain business undertakings

  • Bed and Breakfast Certificate – ensures that the proposed use complies with County regulations.  
  • Certified Agricultural Producers – an individual who wishes to sell regionally-grown products in the public right-of-way.
  • Home Occupation Certificate – anyone that operates a home-based business which generates more than five visits to the site per week, or who employs a non-resident. In addition, all home-health practitioners and lawn maintenance services are required to register.
  • Use & Occupancy Certificate – documents that the intended use of a space is permitted, and that all applicable safety code and health code requirements have been met. Required before a business can open in a physical location.
