WA State Licensing: Renew Business License

Renew your business license endorsements

All business license endorsements must be renewed each year.


We will mail you a renewal notice about six weeks before your license expires. To avoid penalties, file your renewal by the expiration date. A renewal is considered filed when we receive all fees.
