Our Accountant took care of that for us, but I believe all you have to do is go to the court house.

I found this on the Union County Development Authority page:

Consultants regularly visit and assist companies on-site. Help can include financial analysis, market strategy creation, procurement assistance and export assistance and business plan development. SBDC Consultants who serve Union County include: Ron Simmons or Paul Kreager, phone (770) 531-5681.

Depending on your need a business license for this area might not be needed.

I moved my corporation out of Blairsville city limits a couple years ago. This decision was due in part that no taxes are placed on my revenue stream for a business operated in the county. Even if this business was a corporation that has a revenue stream from the internet and not a dollar is earned from the county. I would have been paying if I were in the city limits. While in the county no money goes to Union county and this is perfectly legal. My tax obligation is to the state of Ga and other states where I collect money.

In Gwinnett county I'd pay a 2% inventory tax just for product sitting on the self regardless of where in the county it is located. When I met with county government here in Union to discuss any benefit to locating a business here they left out entirely the difference in pay or pay not by being locating the business in the county.

The county does not issue business license, only the city of Blairsville. The city limits are very small, so unless you are located right downtown, you may not need a license.

The cost is $100 and you have to make application at City Hall. The application must be approved by City Council prior to opening for business - they meet the first Tuesday of each month.
