Common Business Registration captures the zoning related to your physical location(s) if possible.
What is Zoning? Related to city planning, for example, "zoning" relates to the division of an area into zones, as to restrict the number and types of buildings and their uses. Zoning determines if what you want to do can be done in the location you want to do it. For example, zoning may determine that a manufacturing business is prohibited from residing and operating in a neighborhood zoned as “Residential”.
Each jurisdiction (city, county, etc.) has its own definitions and requirements, so that what may be permitted in one jurisdiction’s “Commercial” zoning locations may not be permitted in another jurisdiction’s “Commercial” zoning locations.
1.Obtain written zoning approval from the respective jurisdiction BEFORE renting, leasing or purchasing any building or property. Some jurisdictional zoning approvals expire after a specified amount of time.
2.Provide a detailed description of all the industry codes and uses your business entails to the zoning department, so that the zoning department can accurately determine your business type.
3.Request a zoning check to determine if other permits for ‘special use’ are required for your business. Zoning check approvals can take several months to receive and must be obtained prior to receiving a business license from a local jurisdiction.
Check with applicable jurisdictions regarding the costs of zoning check requests and additional ‘special use’ permit applications costs.
