Home Based Businesses in Las Vegas

Remote work has become increasingly desirable for various reasons. While many businesses do not permit their employees to work from home, self-employed individuals may have the opportunity to conduct their business remotely. However, it is imperative to note that operating a home-based business may be subject to certain restrictions and regulatory requirements that must be adhered to in order to remain compliant with applicable laws and regulations.

Home Based Business in Las Vegas

The city of Las Vegas allows home-based businesses if they have no impact on the neighborhood and are essentially invisible to their neighbors.

An extensive list of conditions and processes are found under Las Vegas Municipal Code 19.16.180, but in short this a residential home cannot be used as a “storefront” and have employees, customers or clients coming to the property.

Businesses conducted over the internet are ideal for this sort of function, but certain kinds of businesses such as motor vehicle repair, commercial food preparation, or any business that sells ammunition, explosives, or weapons are prohibited in neighborhoods.

To operate a home-based business in Las Vegas, it is necessary to obtain a permit from the city.

The City of Las Vegas requires applicants to possess both a Nevada state business license and a Sales and Use Tax Permit.

Upon securing these prerequisites, an individual may then apply to the City of Las Vegas for a home occupation permit.

Compliance with these regulatory requirements is essential for the lawful operation of a home-based business within city limits.
