ASK THE BUSINESS LICENSE GURU

By David Yount

Question:

“We are trying to start up a retail business selling novelties on the internet. I have an EIN number and have registered the business. I need to know what business licenses and permits I need for Aiken, SC. We are outside of city limits.”

Answer:

 As for a business license, since you are located outside the city limits, you are considered to be in the unincorporated area of Aiken County. Generally, you would then be required to meet the licensing requirements of the county, not the city. Aiken County, however, does not require licenses for businesses in the unincorporated county area, so you are not required to obtain one.
