Business Licenses

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.
