Do you need a business license for a meal planning business in WV?

The business would only be weekly & monthly meal plans, grocery lists, and budgets for clients. Is a business license required for this in WV?

    If you are just planning the meals and grocery lists then you are a CONSULTANT.  You can use your SSN as your tax ID #.  Just open a separate bank account for the money you earn consulting and file as self employed at the end of the year.  Keep track of all of your expenses.

    If you only earn $200 or $300 by the end of the year you can call that 'hobby income' and not have to file a separate business tax form.

    Technically you need a business license for any business you conduct, but for this you would not need a food service license.

    Visit the Excellence-Success site and read about the food service and restaurants business.

    West Virginia towns and cities are quite aggressive with business licenses and B&O (Business and Occupation) taxes.

    It varies by town or city but, I would say "yes".

    I see failure ahead. With or without a license.
