Can I Renew at the Same Time?

Under the new OBR system, changes to a registration and renewal MUST be completed as two separate filings.

If you also require renewal of your current registration, amend the details and then complete the renewal application for your business registration.

Can I Change My Business Name?

To change the name of your current registration, you will need to complete a new registration.

A Business Name Registration, formerly Master Business License under the Business Name Act, does not allow a change of the business name.

It was very easy to renew my business license online. An agent followed up with me immediately by email when she noticed an address discrepancy on my application. It was easily resolved. Prompt, professional and friendly service.
