Question: Do I need a business license to start a home-based business in Virginia? It is all done on the Internet so do I still need a license?

Yes.

The Commonwealth of Virginia requires most businesses to obtain a license or permit that is issued by the Commonwealth and in many cases, another through your local government.

Even if you operate a business from home, you still need to license. Anytime you earn money there are two entities that always want to know: the federal government, and your state tax agency.
