Loudoun County has a wide array of services and resources available to assist business owners and those individuals who are starting their own businesses. To help guide people through the process of starting a business or expanding their business, the county has created the Business Assistance Team. The cross-departmental team is made up of personnel who specialize in a particular area of the process, such as permitting, licensing, mapping, zoning – and more. Members of BAT participate in cross-departmental training to help provide a seamless and coordinated experience for business customers, regardless of which department the customer contacts first.
