Business owners operating in the Regional District of Central Okanagan Electoral Areas should have received a business license renewal notice in the mail  by now.

The deadline for renewing at the reduced rate of $85 is December 31.  After that date, an additional $25 late fee will apply to any business license renewal for the Regional District.

“The end of December renewal date for businesses either based in or working in the Central Okanagan East or Central Okanagan West Electoral Areas coincides with all other municipalities participating in the Inter-Community Business License program,” says Communications Coordinator Bruce Smith.

The two electoral areas include communities such as Joe Rich, Ellison, south Lakeshore Road, Brent Road, Trepanier, North Westside, Traders Cove, Fintry and Wilson’s Landing.

In order to take part in the Inter-Community Business License program, qualifying local companies based in or doing work in the electoral areas must first have a Regional

District business license before they apply to purchase the Inter-Community Business License for an additional $150. 

The inter-community license allows qualifying businesses the flexibility to work in one or more of the 18 other participating municipalities without having to purchase a business license for each.

There are several ways to renew or apply for your business license with the Regional District of Central Okanagan.  You may pay in person at the Regional District office at 1450 KLO Road or drop your renewal notice and payment in the mail.

Also, online payments for renewals and new applications may be made using a Visa or MasterCard through the Regional District website.

To use this secure and convenient payment method, just click on the Online Payments and Services image; select the Business License and Pay Online options and type in the account number and private access code provided on your renewal notice.

For a new license click on the New License menu option and fill out the online form.
