The City is partnered with Washington State Department of Revenue, Business Licensing Service to streamline business licensing. Benefits include:
IMPORTANT NOTE: City will continue to process business license exemptions, special licenses, and home occupation permits, see below.
NOTE: Claiming a City license exemption does not waive the applicable licensing requirements of the State of Washington or other jurisdictions.
A Vancouver business license is applied for as part of the Washington State business registration and license application process or, if your business is already registered with the State, as an amendment to your Washington State business license. See below for two possible methods for applying for a City business license from Washington State Business License Service.
