Yes, fire inspections are required for all home-based businesses, except residential rental properties. Commercial businesses are required to have an initial fire and building inspection and annual fire inspections. Fees vary.
Note: Fire Inspection fees are required to be paid by Exempt entities when Fire Inspections are a requirement.
Exempt entities are still required to file for a business tax receipt on an annual basis.
Annual business tax receipts are valid from October 1 through September 30 the following year. All business tax receipts expire September 30. Beginning on October 1, penalties of up to 25% begin to accrue and an additional $250 may be assessed for non-compliance, per City of Deltona Ordinance Number 05-2009.
No. You may apply for a business tax receipt in your personal name as it appears on your driver’s license or Florida issued ID. If you do have a fictitious name, proof of name registration is required per Florida Statute 205.023 unless you are exempt. Fictitious name registration information can be found at the Division of Corporations site.
Once the application has been received, fees paid, and you have completed all required inspections, the business tax receipt will be mailed to the mailing address provided to us.
The fees vary and may be based on the classification/type of business or service provided, to include number of employees, vending machines, hotel rooms, square footage, restaurant seats, etc., per City of Deltona Ordinance 2008-51 (PDF). The fee schedule is included in the ordinance.
Many businesses and professions are regulated by the State of Florida (i.e. physicians, dentists, engineers, real estate agencies, real estate brokers, cosmetologists, ballroom dance studios, health studios, travel agents, motor vehicle repair shops, etc.). In most cases, the state license, registration or permit must be obtained before receiving your city business tax receipt. A new business applying for a business tax receipt using a fictitious name (any name that does not include the owner's complete legal name) must show a copy of the Fictitious Name Registration before a business tax receipt can be issued. A Social Security number or a Federal Employee Identification number is also required. Please submit a copy of your state license, registration or permit with your application.
Any Business with a physical base of operations within the city limits of the City of Deltona, whether at a residential or commercial location, is required to register.

The receipt is the method by which the city grants the privilege of engaging in, or managing any business, profession, or service within its jurisdiction in accordance with Florida Statute 205 and City of Deltona Ordinance.
