Licenses, Permits and Forms

Rabun County does not require nor do we issue Business Licenses. However, if your business is located in one of the cities, you will need to contact that city because all cities do issue and require business licenses.

Rabun County does however, require and issue Liquor By the Drink and Beer & Wine Licenses for retail sale and consumption. An application can be found below.

In addition, Rabun County also require and issues Hotel/Motel or Public Accommodations Licenses. An application for this can be found below. All license holders are required to file a quarterly tax return and pay a 5% tax on gross sales.

Ordinances relating to both of these licenses can be found here.
