Invoicing for Business Licenses

A Business License is valid for the calendar year of the application date.  The calendar year runs from January 1, of the current year to December 31, of the same year.  After July 1, any new applications for Residential Business Licenses will be pro-rated to half (50%) of the yearly fee.  Invoices are mailed out within the first 2 weeks of December. Fees are due and payable by the last week in January of the current calendar year.  Anyone operating a business without paying the associated fees is in violation of the Business License Bylaw #10-08.  

If you are no longer operating a business within the Town of Strathmore, it is your responsibility to either contact the Town, or to sign at the bottom of your invoice, verifying that you are no longer operating a business.  Closed businesses will not be invoiced.
