The business licence fee schedule is by licence type. If your business requires multiple licence types, the highest category fee will be charged. Licensing fees do not cover the cost of additional permits or required inspections.
New licensing fees are charged when a business changes locations, as new approvals and inspections are required.
Additional licence fees and charges are listed at the bottom of the Licence fee schedule.
