Business Licences - Renew by February 15

Business licence renewal payments are due by January 15 each year.

The City offers a "grace period" before penalties apply. After February 15, a late fee of $25 will apply to all business licence accounts with outstanding balances.

Accounts must be paid in full in order for a licence to be issued. Operating a business without a valid licence may result in a fine of $250 per day.

There is a number of convenient ways to pay for your City of Victoria Business Licence: 

  • At most banks and financial institutions (The account number noted at the top of your Business Licence Renewal Invoice will be your business licence number.)
  • By mail to: City of Victoria, #1 Centennial Square, Victoria, BC V8W 1P6
  • In person at the Public Service Centre, located on the first floor of Victoria City Hall at #1 Centennial Square. Payment can be made by cash, debit, credit card or cheque. (Cheques are to be made payable to "City of Victoria".)
