HOME BASED BUSINESS (HBB)
FOR INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR OWN HBB FOR APPROVAL:
Military personnel, DOD civilian employees and their family members can operate home-based businesses (HBBs), and other commercial solicitation to provide goods and services to other U.S. forces members and affiliates.
Family members stationed in Europe may want to work out of their home and try their hand at starting a business in or out of their government quarters.
Examples of supported businesses and services are tutoring, singing and dancing lessons, photography, crafts, some cosmetic services, accounting and tax services, word processing and similar enterprises. In addition, multi-level sales activities (i.e. Avon, Tupperware and Mary Kay) are typical HBB activities. Family Childcare (FCC) providers and private organization fundraising activities are not considered HBBs.
Products and services that come into direct competition with on-post providers, such as Army and Air Force Exchange Service, Family and MWR, and other non-appropriated fund activities, are evaluated on a case-by-case basis and are generally not permitted. Additionally, the sale of goods and services against the morale and good order of the community are strictly prohibited.
Services involving hair styling, cutting and coloring; baking and food preparation; children; and party activities are heavily regulated by German law. Individuals interested in operating an HBB related to these activities must comply with host nation and local laws regarding licensure and work permits. Business owners may also be subject to host nation taxes and fees.
All HBB owners, regardless of business or location, are subject to in-person sanitation reviews conducted by the Army and the German government.
DOD-sponsored personnel who operate unauthorized HBBs or violate Army regulation may be face disciplinary action, loss of individual logistic support, denial of access to Army installations in Europe and removal from housing.
To report unauthorized businesses or commercial activities, contact the Customs Office.
