Welcome to the Business Service Center Online Calculator and Renewal for business license fees and Local Accommodations taxes.

The screens that follow allow users to: (1) calculate your business license fee, (2) print the online renewal form to mail in, and (3) pay online and receive a $10 discount.

You need to contact the Business Service Center at 803-576-2287 or bsc@richlandcountysc.gov if:
(1) You are opening a new business,
(2) You are obtaining or renewing your first business license,
(3) You want to reopen a closed business,
(4) Section 5 of the renewal form applies to your business (so we may provide you with that license number), or
(5) Your business has had a change of location, ownership, or business activity in the last year.

The deadline for renewing business licenses without penalty is March 15th. A 5% penalty will be assessed on fees paid or postmarked after that date and every first of the month thereafter.

Please enter your Business ID and LocationID.
(These are the two-part business license number (or account number), which can be found on the first page of the pre-printed renewal form or on the business license itself.)

This application requires a screen resolution of 1024x768 or greater. To adjust your computer's resolution, right click on your desktop, select Properties, then select Settings.
