Business License Applications and information
Liquor License Applications and information

All City licenses expire June 30 of each year. License renewal takes place from June 1-September 30 each year. A license application must accompany a renewal payment.  Applications and additional paperwork (as applicable) are required each year. A reminder letter is mailed at the end of May to the mailing address on the license account. Licenses shall be considered delinquent on August 1 of each year, although August is a grace-period for delinquent penalties. If a license remains delinquent after August 31, penalties apply. If a license remains delinquent after September 30, the license is automatically revoked. City Code 6-93

Business License fees can be paid by cash, check (made out to the City of Belton), or online (2.45% processing fee). License fees are listed on the specific application. Business License fees are not prorated. Different types of licenses have different fees and requirements.
