If your business is a corporation or if it requires a trade name, your first stop should be at Division of Corporations & Trademarks found at the Lt. Governor’s office.
The first step in obtaining a business license is filling out an application through the Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs (DLCA). The department requires certain documents from potential business owners before they can be issued a license. Certain types of businesses require documents specialized to the industry. DLCA provides a list of documents that each type of business requires.
And, of course, joining the St Croix Chamber of Commerce will help you get the word out to the community about your new business.
