2011 State of Delaware business licenses expire at the end of the month, so it’s time to renew according to the state Division of Revenue.
Business owners and operators may renew online and may print a temporary license from their own computer, which substitutes as a valid license until the permanent one comes in the mail. “Renewing a business license online is fast and secure,” says Division of Revenue Director Patrick Carter. “Licensees who renew online also receive their business licenses more quickly due to automated processing.” Businesses will need their Tax ID Number and Business License Number to complete the online renewal. This information remains consistent each year, but can also be found on the annual License Renewal Notice mailed to businesses by the Delaware Division of Revenue beginning mid-December 2011. Any business renewing a license this year may also elect a three-year business license, which additionally decreases future paperwork.
