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.

NOTE: When February 15 falls on a weekend or a statutory holiday, the deadline is the following business day (February 16, 2021).

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 way to pay for your City of Victoria Business Licence:

  • Online using the City of Victoria's Online Payment Service.
  • At most banks and financial institutions (The account number will be your business licence number noted at the top of your Business Licence Renewal Invoice.)
  • 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".)
