Business License

Advanced Member

I am moving down after the first of the year and am in the processes of connecting with an employer where I will basically be an independent contractor. I am excited because the position will be a "work from home" type of situation - mostly research. But here's my question: I will need to get a business license in the VI's and since I understand the process can take sometime, I want to start the application right away. However, I don't have an address yet. Does anyone know if I can set up an account with Red Hook Mail Service and use that as my physical address on STT? Thanks in advance for the help!

The only way I would suggest getting a business license is to use LeBron & Assoc.
340-776-4678 and fax 340-776-9720

I don't know what type of work from home situation you're planning on doing but I know somebody who wouldn't have been able to get the license to work from home because it would have been against the zoning in the area where the home is. Mr. LeBron was able to word the application in a way it wasn't an issue. He's well worth whatever he charges. The licensing department will ask for the physical address & will know that 6501 Red Hook is a mail place.

for most business licenses in the USVI, you need to be a resident of the islands for a specified period of time (different length for different types of licenses) prior to submitting your application. You probably will also need a "tax clearance letter" from the VI government and references from several people who have been island residents at least 5 years.
