Business Licensing

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Surrey City Hall's operating hours have temporarily switched to appointment-only. Visitors must now call ahead to book an appointment.

To conduct your business in Surrey, you must have a valid business licence. To apply for a new business licence, renew your existing licence, or update your contact details, use our Online Business Licensing application. Make sure you have reviewed the bylaws and regulations affecting how businesses are operated in Surrey.

For any questions about the application process, please contact our Licensing Office at or 604-591-4370.

For more information on Surrey’s business community and economy, contact our Economic Development Division at or 604-591-4128. You can also view our business licensing statistics.
