Business License & Registration

All businesses operating in Nags Head need to complete a Business License/Registration Application Form (PDF) and return to the Town of Nags Head's tax collector with your appropriate remittance fee (if applicable). Fees for those businesses with prior licenses would be due by September 1st. Any new businesses would need to register and pay the annual fee prior to beginning operations.

New commercial businesses, in existing structures, should also complete a Change of Tenant/Use Form with the Planning Department. Approval from the commercial zoning officer will be required before a business license/registration will be issued.
