Due to COVID restrictions, in-person Business License and Registration applications are accepted by appointment only.
Call (651) 249-2005 to schedule.
The Citizen Services department (Office of the City Clerk) issues various types of business licenses, permits, and registrations. Certain businesses may require more than one type of license or permit, and requirements and fees vary.
The licenses, permits, and registration issued through the Citizen Services department are listed on this page's subpages for your convenience. Please refer to the City Code for complete information on each.
Approval of submissions can take 2 to 3 business days, so listings may not immediately appear in the Business Directory. If you have any questions or encounter any problems while submitting your request, please email the Licensing Team.
