More than 70 percent of businesses licensed by the Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs can be renewed online. If you are eligible to renew your Basic Business License online, your renewal bill will include a unique six-digit PIN number.

To renew, you will need:

You can renew your Basic Business License up to ninety (90) days prior to the expiration date of your current license.
