Can I operate my own business in my on-post quarters?  
To increase employment opportunities for military spouses, home-based businesses are permitted in military family housing. However, some restrictions apply. Individuals wishing to engage in commercial activities in government furnished quarters should submit a written request to the installation commander for authorization to do so. Commanders must consider issues such as local government licensing requirements, potential government liability, overseas Status of Forces Agreements (SOFA), host nation business practices, and prospective advertising practices before granting approvals. Additionally, commanders may not authorize commercial activities in family housing areas that jeopardize military community tranquility, harmony among neighbors, or safety.
