ERP_web-promo_final6.jpg

We hope you find this webpage to be resourceful as it contains step by step instructions, regulations, and policies that pertain to Home-Based Businesses (HBB) currently operating on Camp Zama and Sagamihara Family Housing Area.  We have also included a process map for each section to enhance awareness and minimize confusion.  Our goal is to work with all applicants to ensure compliance and offer resources.

 

GETTING STARTED

Before you begin, please note the following:

OPORD 20-045, “Individuals work remotely from their home (such as a consultant, freelance artist, or teleworker), or who operate their own business exclusively through online means (for example, eBay and Etsy) are NOT considered a HBB and do NOT require approval to operate.  Other examples of businesses that do NOT require approval include but are not limited to: tax preparation, personal training (as long as the training is not conducted in the home), photography, and tutoring, etc.”

 

Only a HBB Permit allows you to conduct business on Army installations in Japan.

 

What you need to do and/or provide to our office:

  • A completed Application for Home-Based Business Permit form
  • Signed Statement of Understanding
  • Signed Checklist
  • Approval from Housing Division
  • Approval from MEDDAC-J Preventive Medicine for HBB’s soliciting food and drink (if applicable)

  • A copy of your state Certifications/Licenses/Insurance/Permit (if applicable)
