What is happening?
The Business Licensing Service (BLS) will move all licensing systems and related data from the Department of Licensing (DOL) to the Department of Revenue (DOR). The BLS licensing system will be down from May 18 to May 20. We expect to return to normal operations on Monday, May 21.
When will this occur?
Implementation will be effective Monday, May 21.
What can I expect?
- It’s important that business owner’s finish partially completed applications or renewals before May 18, as the information will be deleted during the move and the applicant will have to start over.
- Reports that normally generate on Fridays or Saturdays will arrive the following week.
Can business owners still submit paper applications or renewals during this time?
Yes. Paper applications and renewals will be accepted without interruption.
The BLS licensing system will be down for a very short time period. It is still quicker to wait until the online licensing systems are back up, than to mail the application and information into the Business Licensing Service.
