Business Requirements

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.
