To start a business in Johns Creek, you will need to obtain a Business Tax Certificate
(business license). Other permits and licenses also may be required, depending on what type of business you plan to run and whether or not you are operating under a trade name.
If you’re considering a home-based business, please review Article 4.12 of the Zoning of the City of Johns Creek entitled “Home Occupation.” A Business Tax Certificate is also required for all home-based businesses.
Certificates are valid for a calendar year, Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, and returns must be filed by March 31 each year. Renewals received after this date are subject to a 10% late filing fee and interest.
