Business Licences

Business Licences are required for anyone providing a service or operating within City limits, ranging from contractors coming in from out of town, a retail store operating from a commercial location or an accountant operating an office from home.

Licences are valid from January to December, and are to be renewed each year that the business is operating. Short-Term licences are also available, valid for four consecutive months within the calendar year.

There is more to consider than simply getting a Business Licence. Ensure you have reviewed the Steps to Starting a Business page to determine other requirements.
