There are a few extra rules that try to keep the “home” in “home based business.” Is your business online? Do you have in-person customers, but see less than sixteen roundtrips per day including deliveries and client-related trips? A home business permit may fit your needs. It will allow you to operate a business within your home whether you live in a house, townhouse, apartment, or accessory dwelling unit. For a full list of home occupation standards, please see EMC 18.100.070 and EMC 18.100.080. You may also visit Business License FAQ Answer Page.
