Business Licenses

Privilege Business License – Important Notice
Effective July 1, 2015, most businesses operating in the city limits of Gastonia will no longer be required to renew their Business Privilege License and will not be receiving a license renewal application. Businesses that are still required to obtain a privilege license have already been mailed renewal forms, and payment may be made in person or through mail as specified on the instructions. If you have any questions, please contact our Building Support and Zoning Services Division at 704-866-6729 for assistance.
