Business Licenses

The Town of Winter Park Town Code requires the licensing of any business, occupation, profession, or activity engaged in for-profit within the Town limits, regardless of actual physical business location. Businesses with multiple locations or branches within the Town limits are required to obtain a business license for each location they operate.

Rentals


Renting your condo? If your unit is located within the Town limits and you plan to rent it nightly or for periods of less than 31 days, you must hold a business license and remit sales tax. Those units that are professionally managed by a third party may operate under the property management business license.
If you or your organization is exempt from business license requirements but plan to conduct business within Town limits, please contact the Business Support Technician to verify your exemption.
