Debate is On Over Business Licenses Fees in Isle of Wight

Come 2018, the business license fee structure in Isle of Wight, Virginia​ can change. Officials are in debate about the reason for the change and whether or not it's necessary.

Assistant County Administrator Don Robertson said that before debating specific fees and rates, it would help him and county staff to know what the board’s intention is for potentially changing the county’s business license fees.

“If the intent is to help small businesses, we can develop a rate structure that can do that; if your intent is to have accountability of those businesses [earning less than $4,000] then we need to look at whether this is the best mechanism to get them to come through the door and file for a business license,” Robertson said.

No matter how much it costs or how much your business is earning, business licenses are a must.
