WA State Licensing: Add a new business location

Add a new location to your existing business

Step 1: Consult the Business Licensing Guide

The Business Licensing Guide is an online service that gives you licensing information and forms based on your business activity and location. When you tell us about your business (for example, restaurant in Seattle), the Business Licensing Guide creates a customized guide sheet that includes the forms you’ll need and a list of agencies to contact.

Step 2: File a new Business License Application and supplemental forms


Step 3: Research additional licensing requirements

For licenses not available through Business Licensing Service, contact the agencies, cities, or counties listed on your Business Licensing Guide Sheet.
