Renewing / Changing a Business License

Renewing a License
If you hold a valid license on December 31, the Town of Banff assumes you are renewing your license and will send you an invoice at the beginning of the new year. All businesses, except for hotels and bed and breakfasts, are invoiced in January of each year.

Hotels, bed and breakfast homes and bed and breakfast inns are invoiced four times per year, in March, June, September and December.

Business license renewal fees are due 30 days after the date the bills are mailed. Outstanding balances are subject to monthly interest charges.

IMPORTANT: Please notify Business Licensing as soon as possible if you no longer require a business license.
