Bylaw #05/12 of the Town of Birch Hills requires you to have an annual Business License if you own a home-based business.
The purpose of the Business Licensing Bylaw is to regulate businesses, ensure compliance with land use and building regulations, gather land use information and facilitate planning decisions.
Business licenses are required to be renewed January 1st of each calendar year. Businesses that hold a valid Business License will be included in the Town’s Business Directory. If you operate a business out of a commercial property, you are taxed commercially with a commercial mill rate factor and do not require a separate business license.
