Businesses operating in Hanover County must register with the Commissioner
of the Revenue. Businesses pay personal property taxes on the equipment used
for the business. Hanover County does not require a business license for most
businesses to operate in the county; however, we do require a Contractor’s
License for contractors, electric contractors, plumbers and steam fitters.
If you are opening a new business, there are resources available to
help you through the process. Below are links that may give you information on
new business requirements.
