In an effort to streamline the licensing process and make it easier for businesses to apply or renew business licenses, the City of Burien is working with the Department of Revenue’s Business Licensing Service (BLS). Starting May 21, 2020, BLS will begin to process the City of Burien’s business licenses and renewals.

In order to have time to successfully launch the business licensing system, no new business licenses will be processed May 8–20. The City of Burien will continue to process business licenses for emergency construction projects during the temporary transition period.

A new business licensing system will make it easier to apply or renew your business license by providing a one-stop shop for both Burien and state business licenses. The new system will allow you to apply or renew online, saving you time and bookkeeping costs.
