Business Citation or Notice

If you received a business license notice or citation

  • Most businesses operating in Chesterfield County are required to obtain a business license.
  • It appears that you are operating a business without a valid business license. This could be based on a number of factors such as:
    • You were observed conducting business as describe by state and county code.
    • You filed paperwork that is normally only required for persons conducting business.
    • You were advertising or otherwise holding yourself out as being in business.
    • We received a complaint.
  • In accordance with section six of the code of Chesterfield County, operating a business without the proper license is considered a class 1 misdemeanor.
