Commercial rental property owners with one or more rental units are subject to apply for and obtain a Commercial Rental Property Business License under the City of Quesnel Business Regulation and Licensing Bylaw.
The application form requires you to identify all rental units you own per property. If you have MULTIPLE properties with rental units you complete one application form, obtain one business license, and pay an annual business license fee based on the total number of rental units on all properties listed on the application form.
If you occupy units within the buildings please identify them in the number of total units but do not count towards total rental units. In the below example, the property owner has 1 property with 2 buildings and a total of 3 units in the buildings, all are rented out.
Commercial rental property license fees: □
One unit = $75
Ten or less units = $100
11 or more units = $150
Payment is not currently accepted online for new business licences. Business owners may pay in person (cash, debit or cheque) at City Hall, or may call City Hall to arrange a bank transfer (250-992-2111).
All business licences expire on December 31st of the current year. Renewal notices are mailed in January for the that year to the current address we have on file for the property owner.
