Business Certificates

Filing for a Business Certificate: Commonly known as a "d/b/a" or "doing business as" form.

A Business certificate is a local registration of a business that is located within the Town and is required by MGL Chapter 110, s.5.

A Business Certificate is not a license to do business in the town.  Its purpose is primarily for consumer protection and public information purposes.  Additional licenses/permits issued by other Town Departments or State Agencies may be required in order to do business.  Please check with the Building Inspector/Zoning Enforcement Officer (781-293-6557) to determine if the business is an allowed use in the intended zoning district.
