OLYMPIA, WASH. – April 25, 2019 – The Department of Revenue today welcomes the island community Friday Harbor to its streamlined licensing solution.
The only incorporated town in Washington’s picturesque San Juan Islands is reaching across the water to connect its business community with Anacortes, Bellingham and more than 90 other Washington cities.
By linking to the state Business Licensing Service (BLS), Friday Harbor businesses can now apply for and renew city business licenses at the same time they complete requirements for state registrations, such as liquor and tobacco licenses.
More than 800 businesses work in Friday Harbor each year with many also retaining licenses for other cities. The new partnership streamlines the requirements with BLS’s free online services.
BLS offers a unique technology solution that connects state local licensing to streamline applications and renewals for Washington businesses. Find out more at http://bls.dor.wa.gov.
