Business or Occupation License

The City of Batesville does not require a business or occupation license.  It is always a good idea to contact our Code Enforcement Office for any permits or zoning restrictions prior to opening a new business.  If you need a letter stating no business or occupation license is required, please feel free to contact our office and we can send one out to you.
