Virtually every business in the United States is required to file for federal and state licenses or permits in order to operate legally. Business services are usually a cause for an inconvenient and drawn out process, but not in Greensville County. In fact, Forbes has ranked Virginia as one of the nation’s top states for business for four consecutive years – in large part due to ease of regulations!
The state of Virginia and the locality of Greensville County are committed to providing efficient and simplified permitting and licensing processes, which begin with helpful service from the Greensville Planning Office and support from local government officials.
Perhaps that’s reason enough for so many successful businesses to make a home in Southside Virginia – including FedEx, Georgia-Pacific, and Boar’s Head Provisions—but we don’t stop there. Competitive cost of living, beautiful natural landscapes, and a rich history provide residents and transplants alike a high quality of life.
