Nashville Streamlines Application Process for Business Name Changes

The Nashville Beer Board has simplified the process for businesses changing their name.

The Nashville Beer Board has announced a new streamlined application process for businesses seeking to change their name while maintaining their existing beer permit. Under the new procedure, the business’s existing beer permit number will remain the same, and a $250 application fee will be applied to the permit for payment through the online ePermits system.

The application will be added to the agenda of the next available Beer Board meeting, following standard operating procedures. Required documents for the name change include an updated Business License and Certificate of Registration (Sales and Use Tax) if the previous documents are in the old business name, as well as an Initial Inspection Form, which can be requested by emailing the board.

Once all required documents have been submitted and the DBA Name Change has officially occurred, the Beer Board may issue a temporary beer permit under the new business name. The updated permit will be linked to the previous permit, including the location’s history of inspections, complaints, and citations.
