New License Not Required
If a business restructuring occurs, the ownership structure of an existing business changes from/to sole proprietor, LLC, corporation, LLP, partnership or any other form of ownership, and there is no purchasing of the assets of the existing licensed business, a new Business License is not necessary. However, we do require notification of the change, in writing, be sent to the Business License Office so that we may update the information in our system. Send notifications to:
