If you are planning to operate a business within the City of Reno from your home, please review the business licensing guide and the home based business license criteria. Then complete and submit the home based business license application along with the business review form and SIIS compliance form.
Per NRS 364A all applicants are required to register for a State Business License with the Nevada Secretary of State’s Office. A fictitious name filling, also known as DBA (Doing Business As) with the Washoe County Clerk’s Office is also required if you are not using your legal first and last name or a corporate name. Proof of registration is required at the time of application.
The applicable rules and regulations for home based business licenses can be found under Title 4 of the Reno Municipal Code.
