Question:
Does the County require a business license?
Answer:
Greenville County does not require a business license. However, contact Codes Enforcement, (864) 467-7060, for a permit if new construction; for a change of tenant; if the business will be going in an existing building; and to see if the property is zoned correctly for its intended use. Contact individual municipalities for information on whether a business license is required within city limits.

NOTE: While the County does not require a business license, we do require a business to file a business registration application. There is no fee associated with the registration, but proper registration is required by law. For more information go to Business Registration Program
