All persons who operate a business in Plymouth must register either with the Corporations Division of the Office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth or with the Town Clerk. Corporations operating in Plymouth under a name different from the corporate name must register with both entities.
To file a business certificate with the Town of Plymouth, an owner or his agent may come to the Inspectional Services (Building) Department to procure a zoning permit for a business certificate. This typically takes about five days.
The owner should bring a signed copy of the Zoning Permit to the Town Clerk’s Office. Owner(s) may procure the business certificate by signing it at the Town Clerk’s Office and paying $40. If this is inconvenient, an agent may procure an unsigned certificate, and the owner(s) may sign before a Notary. The completed form should be brought to the Town Clerk’s Office with $40 for filing.
