ASK THE BUSINESS LICENSE GURU

By David Yount

Question:

“Can I renew my expired business license?”

Answer:

It depends on the rules of the governing body in charge of the license. In some cases, there is a window in which a renewal may be submitted late. In others, late renewals may carry a penalty fee. Some licensing boards might cancel a license immediately after its expiration date and require a reinstatement application to be submitted in order to bring the license back to active status. If you have a license that is expired, it is important to find out what your options are, given the rules of the issuing board.
