Business License Fees

City of Renton Business License fees are based on total hours worked in a year by all personnel; including corporate officers, partners, family, etc., regardless if a salary is paid or not. You are billed at the end of each anniversary date of the business's original application for a City Business License. This annual report must be paid each year to keep your license valid.

If your business is located outside the City limits and you are coming into the City to do business a license is required. You may pay for an entire year or obtain a Temporary Business License, good for 90 days for a $50.00 fee. Temporary Business Licenses are available to in-city businesses as well, who anticipate only a short need (90 days) for a license.
