City of Moses Lake Business Licensing

UPDATE: Due to the "Stay Home, Stay Healthy" order, the state Business Licensing Service will not automatically terminate expired license endorsements through May 31. For more information, please visit BLS Partner Post.

The City of Moses Lake requires all businesses located within the city limits, or who conduct business within the city limits, to be licensed with the city.

The City participates in State Business Licensing Service partnership. This combined licensing system makes it easier to connect state and local requirements in one annual transaction for most businesses.  

For fast service, apply online for a city business license. The business license fee schedule and other information are here.
