OPENING YOUR BUSINESS IN A COMMERCIAL SPACE

Whether you have grown out of your Woodridge home-based business or are looking to move your business into one of the Village’s commercial corridors, there are several factors to consider. Finding a location for your business is a big decision, and as a business owner you will have a number of things to consider when assessing the viability of a particular location.

​REGISTERING WITH THE STATE OF ILLINOIS

If you conduct business in Illinois or with Illinois customers, you must register with the Illinois Department of Revenue. This includes sole proprietors, exempt organizations, and government agencies withholding for Illinois employees. All businesses that sell goods and collect sales tax must obtain an Illinois Business Tax Identification Number. That number must be tied to a physical location within the Village of Woodridge. Businesses with multiple locations may share the same IBT number, but each must have a unique location assigned. Businesses operating temporarily within the Village (e.g.,fairs, trade shows, and farmers markets) must also have an IBT number indicating that the sale took place within the borders of the Village.
