I'm in the binghamton ny area and I want to know if I need a small business licence to mow. I've been mowing a few yards for a few years but this spring I am going to get a business going. I am just going to do yards and possibly a couple apartments, I'm not going to mow for businesses or not right away at least. Also I'm not going to advertise, I'm just going to talk to people about getting yards and ask people if they know anyone that wants there yard mowed. I am going to use a regular mower(not a commercial mower, at least not right away). Do I need to get a licence or can I go without one? Any advise on what I need to do to get a mowing business going is appreciated. Thanks!
