An occupational license is required for any business located in Key West, and for certain businesses located outside city limits but conducting business within the City. The City of Key West permits certain business to operate from a residential property (home occupations). These are regulated by a land-use ordinance and require a special application. Occupational license applications can be obtained and submitted at the Occupational Licensing counter located in the Building Department at 604 Simonton Street, Key West. All applications for new licenses are reviewed within 48 hours.

Requirements for license approval include:

  • Property ownership or authorization to use property for business
  • Commercial garbage account
  • Sales tax registration
  • Articles of incorporation (if business is incorporated)
  • State inspection or license (if applicable)
  • Current balances on all City accounts (sewer/garbage)
  • Approved final inspections on construction, or C.O.
  • Approval from City Fire Prevention Division
