Business Licences

The Town of Essex maintains a Business Registry but does not issue or charge for most business licences. Exceptions apply to taxi services and transient vendors.

Taxi services

The Town of Essex issues licences for taxicabs once all licensing conditions have been met. By-Law 1052 outlines taxicab requirements.

Transient vendors

Transient vendors may only locate in a commercial, industrial or institutional zone. The conditions on the Transient Vendor Checklist must be met before a licence will be issued.

Business Registry

All new businesses are required to file a business registration form with the Town of Essex Planning Department. The purpose of this process is to ensure that new businesses comply with zoning provisions.
