Alabama’s New Business License Renewal Requirement

Tim Hufford, CPA

October 5, 2020

If you have a business in Alabama, you will have a new requirement beginning November 1st.  Any business that currently pays sales tax, rental tax, sellers use tax, lodgings tax, utility gross receipts tax, or simplified sellers use tax will now be required to renew their business license annually. 

Luckily the process for renewal these is fairly straightforward.  Businesses will be able to login to their My Alabama Taxes (MAT) account in order complete the process.  You will need to review and update the following items as necessary:

·         Current Legal Name

·         Owner/Officer/Member information

·         Phone number

·         Social security numbers/FEIN’s

·         Address(es) for each location

paperwork

Completing this process is necessary, because if the license is not renewed in a timely manner Alabama will cancel it.  This could cause problems with businesses that rely on their license to make tax-exempt purchases for resale or rental purposes.  Also note that if the entity type of your business changes, i.e., if you change from a partnership to a S-Corp, you will need to apply for a new license. 

Making a plan for renewing these licenses will be important to make sure your business stays compliant.  More information can also be found through Alabama Department of Labor.  Please feel free to reach out to us for help with the process or additional information.
