Opening a Business

When starting a new business, it is necessary to talk with City Staff to ensure the proposed business type is allowed in the zoning district where you will be operating.

The City of Andrews does not issue Business Licenses when starting a new business; however, the State of Texas has several requirments: 

  • Step 1: Business Structure and Name
  • Step 2: Business Tax Responsibilities
  • Step 3: Business Licenses and Permits by Business Type
  • Step 4: Business Employer Requirements

Once the legal structure of the business has been determined, and if a separate business name will be used, the business name (DBA) must be registered with the county clerk’s office and/or the Secretary of State.

Please refer to the State of Texas website for additional information.
