Can I transfer my business certificate to a new owner?
Business certificates are not transferable. If you sell your business, it is your responsibility to notify our office so your business certificate may be closed. The new owner must complete a new business certificate application in his/her name. For current fees, please see the Master Fee Schedule (PDF).
