Check for Additional Regulations
Check for local zoning ordinances, regulations, building permits, and fire codes. Certain businesses require additional licenses / regulations
or are only allowed in specific areas.
If you are a daycare provider, massage therapist, small loan/payday loan business, tattoo business, or wish to sell alcohol or tobacco, please contact the City Clerk's office for additional requirements. 816.331.4331
Set Up an Inspection
Once the business is set up and ready to go, call for building and fire inspections. It is the responsibility of the business owner/applicant to call for inspections.
Pay the Appropriate Fees
After all inspections are completed and approved and all required information obtained, you can pay the appropriate fees at City Hall and a license will be issued to you. All licenses must be paid for by cash or check (made out to the City of Belton). License fees are not pro-rated and all licenses expire June 30 of each year.
Please note - a business license is assigned to a particular business name, address, and owner. If these change, a new application must be filed.
