OLYMPIA – Feb. 13, 2015 – Carbonado, Rockford and Bridgeport join 62 other cities as partners in the state’s Business Licensing Service – a streamlined one-stop shop offering licensing and renewal services.
Starting Feb. 13, businesses in all three municipalities will use the Business Licensing Service to register or renew their licenses. The service brings the city requirements together with state registrations that a business may need to operate, such as a liquor license, all in a single, convenient location.
The Business Licensing Service is a clearinghouse for business licensing, offering nearly 400 licenses, registrations and endorsements from 11 state agencies and partner cities. The Washington State Department of Revenue (Revenue) manages the Business Licensing Service.
The BLS is one of the few systems in the country that allows a business to become licensed with cities at the same time it registers with state agencies.
Carbonado is located near the Carbon River in northern Pierce County. Rockford is located in Spokane County. Bridgeport is a city in Douglas County, located near the Chief Joseph Dam.
Carbonado, Rockford and Bridgeport businesses located inside city limits and currently registered with Revenue will be sent letters this month notifying them that the city registration has been added to their state business license.
