Opening A Business

Opening a Business

The Town of Miami Lakes is at the forefront of providing its business owners with information and support to help their businesses “Grow Beautifully”.

This Miami Lakes Business Handbook was created as a way to encourage entrepreneurism and business development. Starting your business can be difficult at times. This guide seeks to help you along the way by providing resources and basic information to get you started in the right direction.

 

STEP ONE
Choose Your Location.

Before speaking with a Zoning Information Specialist, go to the Town Website: www.MiamiLakes/FindZoning/ to learn more about the property you wish to purchase or rent for your business.

Confirm with the Zoning Department that the desired use is allowed in the zoning district where you are looking to locate your business by calling (305) 512-7128 or via email at: zoningdepartment@miamilakes-fl.gov.

 

STEP TWO
Click here for CERTIFICATE OF USE APPLICATION

For questions, contact the Town’s Building Department via email at buildingdepartment@miamilakes-fl.gov or by phone at (305) 821-4015.

Click here for the necessary steps before submitting the application.

 

STEP THREE
Once you have obtained DERM and Fire approval, return the certificate of use application to the Building Department for final processing.

 

STEP FOUR
Click here for BUSINESS TAX RECEIPT APPLICATION

*Please note: Each agency or professional business office is required to have a business tax receipt and each professional working out of such location is required to appear as a Licensee.

The Town is committed to promoting continued growth and expansion of the business community and is equally committed to retaining and supporting our current business base.

In an effort to show our appreciation, the Town alongside its Economic Development Committee has established a Business Welcoming Committee. The program is designed to assist Miami Lakes businesses and provide your company with the opportunity to let us know how the Town can further assist you in your business endeavors. The Town is also happy to assist in coordinating a ribbon cutting ceremony, as well as promote your community events on the Community Calendar hosted on the Town’s website.
