The Department of Revenue Encourages Delaware Businesses to Renew Your Business License Online Now

December 7, 2016

The Division of Revenue would like to remind business owners with licenses expiring at the end of December that the most convenient way to renew your business license is by visiting, and renewing online. Any business whose Delaware business license expires December 31, 2016 may opt to renew online using a credit card, debit card, or via direct debit from your bank account. This convenient online service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Last year, over 65% of business owners used the online renewal service. Renewing a State of Delaware business license online is not only convenient, but it allows the taxpayer to print a temporary license directly from their computer – a benefit for any business requiring proof of a current license, such as contractors and businesses receiving government payments.

“Renewing a business license online is fast and secure,” says Division of Revenue Director Patrick Carter, “the online business license system is a tool that makes life easier for hundreds of Delaware businesses.”

To complete the online renewal, businesses will need their Tax ID Number and Business License Number. Business License Numbers can be found on your current license, or on the annual License Renewal Notice mailed to businesses by the Delaware Division of Revenue. Business renewing a license may elect a one or a three-year business license, decreasing future paperwork.
