An occupation tax certificate (business license) is nontransferable. The certificate is terminated when business ownership changes and/or business location changes. A change in ownership requires the new owner to apply for a new business license. Changes in location or business activity/description requires approval. Advise the Business Registration Division immediately of any changes to your business, especially if the business has ceased to operate. Applicable forms are located below.
