Owning a Business in the Township

New Businesses

In order to operate a business within the Township, business owners are required to contact the Engineering Office to determine if a zoning application must be completed (all home-based businesses are required to complete the zoning application). All prospective businesses within the Township need to complete a Business Registration Packet (PDF).

After zoning is approved (if applicable), your Business Questionnaire will be forwarded to the Berks Earned Income Tax office. A Business Privilege License application and Business Privilege Tax information will be mailed directly to the business owner.

The State of Pennsylvania has many resources for new business owners. Visit the PA Business One-Stop Shop for more details.
