If you’re considering purchasing a property in Nashville to use for business, you’ll need a business license. If a business is located within the Nashville city limits, the owner must pay for a business license or a minimal activity license. The fee for that is $30. Now, if the business is outside the city limits, but still in the county, the owner still has to pay for a business license or a minimal activity license. Outside the city limits, the fee is just $15 though.

If your gross receipts fall between $3,000 and $9,999 during a fiscal year, you only need a minimal activity license. This license is renewed annually.

The City of Nashville makes it easy to get a business license. You can download and print the application right from their website.

You have to include the following information on the application:

  • Business name
  • Business address
  • Business telephone number
  • Owner’s name(s)
  • Owner’s home address
  • Owner’s home telephone number
  • Owner’s social security number
  • Copy of owner(s) driver’s license
  • Signature of each owner

Don’t forget, you still have to report your gross receipts to the Tennessee Department of Revenue each year.
