Business Licenses

Business License Policy


If you own or operate a business in Midlothian, you may be required to apply for a business license. Village ordinances require certain types of Midlothian businesses to purchase a license and prominently display it in the business. This list includes, but is not limited to:
  • Restaurants
  • Coin-Operated Amusement Devices
  • Massage Establishments
  • Tobacco Dealers
  • Grocery Stores/Bakeries
  • Gas Stations
  • Auto Repair
A separate application must be completed for license or permit to engage in the business of soliciting and/or peddling.

License Expiration

Most Midlothian business licenses expire on December 31st. Renewal application forms are mailed out to current license holders in mid to late November. If you do not receive your renewal you still must obtain a new license. Please call the Village Hall if you do not receive your paperwork. You will be charged a late fee for paperwork not received completed with payment in full by the deadline.
