How & Where to obtain an Occupational License in Broward County?

OCCUPATIONAL LICENSES

The following table will give you information where to obtain your occupational licenses in Broward County.

The license must be from the city where the business is located. Call the city first to make certain the address is actually within the boundaries of that city. This will save you valuable time.

First you get a license from the city, then from the County. Licenses are valid for one year.

The generally expire on September 30th.

If you live in unincorporated Broward County, you need only obtain a Broward County occupational license.

Most cities allow home based business with some restrictions such as:

  • No clients/customers are allowed to come to your home
  • No employees
  • No shipping and receiving of goods
  • Do not use the home address in any advertising materials
  • No signs on building

Check with your city for the exact restrictions that apply.
