What if I sell my business?

The City endorsement on your State Business License is personal and non-transferable. No endorsement allows another person to operate a business under the seller's endorsement. The new owner must apply for a new State of Washington business license and City endorsement. To notify the State of the sale of a business, contact:

WA-DOR Business License
(360) 705-6741
