Starting a Business


If you are looking to start up a business in Bella Vista, there is no business permit or fee for operating inside the city limits. However, there are a few requirements you will need to meet with the state of Arkansas. Visit the Arkansas Business Center to find the necessary steps.

If you are looking at building a new structure, or modifying an existing one, for your new business, you will need to submit an application with our Community Development Services department.

If you are operating a business out of your home, there is a zoning compliance letter you will need to fill out. Stop by the city’s Community Development Services office at 616 W. Lancashire Blvd. or call 479-268-4980.
