The City of Richmond offers MyBusiness, an online business licencing service within the City's MyRichmond portal. MyBusiness streamlines the business licencing process through an online self-service option that allows new and existing business owners to apply for, update, and renew their licences online without coming to City Hall.
This online service provides a streamlined way for businesses to interact with the City and access services on-demand such as making online payments and checking on application status. MyBusiness saves time and makes the business licencing process more convenient.
