Submitted by the Town of Friday Harbor
Starting this week, the Town of Friday Harbor is online with the Washington Business Licensing Service to administer its business licensing program.
Businesses that are currently not licensed and doing business in Friday Harbor or expecting to renew their existing licenses will need to apply through the state BLS portal at http://bls.dor.wa.gov/citycounty.aspx.
More information and other relevant links have been posted on the Town of Friday Harbor’s website at http://www.fridayharbor.org/2145/Business-License-Program.
Renewal notices are scheduled to be mailed by BLS in early May. Businesses that receive a renewal notice from BLS should follow the instructions provided to receive their Town of Friday Harbor business license.
Business owners that have questions about the Town of Friday Harbor’s transition to the online system, renewal or application process with the state BLS, or questions about whether their business is exempt from licensing, can contact the town clerk at 360-378-2810 or BLS at 800-647-7706. Both the town and BLS websites have valuable information posted.
The town clerk can be contacted at 360-378-2810 does this feel repetitive? for more information. The town website will be updated frequently.
