Starting a Business

Timo and Nicole, Doner BistroLeesburg loves entrepreneurs! In fact, Fortune Small Business recently rated Leesburg as one of the country’s 100 top places to start a business. See what Fortune had to say about Leesburg as a great town to “Live and Launch.”

 

 



We want to do everything we can to get your business off to a great start. Some of the services the Town’s Economic Development Office provides:

Business Guide
The Town of Leesburg publishes an annual Doing Business Guide that will guide you through the business start-up process step-by-step and provide you with advice, guidance and resources along the way.

Business Licenses
Most businesses, including home-based businesses, are required to have a Town of Leesburg business license and are subject to a gross receipts tax. The BPOL Fact Sheet  contains more information about the Business, Professional and Occupational License (BPOL) tax. For a business license application, please visit the Town Finance Department’s Business Licenses page.

Site Selection Assistance
We can help you find a new location that meets all of your needs. Whether leasing, buying or building to suit, site selection assistance is confidential and free of charge. Check out our Property Information page.
