A separate Business Tax Receipt is required for each place of business.
Please note that a Business Tax Receipt must be obtained BEFORE the business begins operation. If you operate a business prior to obtaining the Business Tax Receipt, you are subject to a penalty as provided by City Code.
All businesses must meet additional requirements, which include compliance with zoning codes and inspections through the City of Melbourne Code Enforcement Division.
