What is involved in opening a business in Oxford?
To start, you'll need a privilege (business) license. You will need to provide an address and a Mississippi state tax ID #. The cost of the license depends on the business. Call 662-232-2350 and the City Clerk's office can answer your questions and/or fax you a form.
If you are renovating an existing location or developing a new location, contact the Building Department for determining what permits are required and steps to follow in developing your business property.
