Business Licensing Forms & Fees

File online for immediate processing.

Forms & Fees

The Division of Corporations, Business and Professional Licensing makes available the following forms for use. In many cases, these forms meet just the minimum statutory and regulatory requirements. Although every effort is taken to ensure the forms comply with Alaska statutory and regulatory requirements, they should not be used in lieu of proper legal guidance from an attorney or other licensed professional.

Business license or endorsement fees are non-refundable after the business license or endorsement has been issued, per 12 AAC 02.010 and 12 AAC 02.015.

General Instructions:

  • Scroll down to view forms.
  • For immediate processing, file online (if available).
  • To file hardcopy, select the PDF. Standard processing time from March–September is 10–15 business days. During heavy business licensing season (October–February), the processing time will be delayed.
  • If you have previously submitted your filing do not duplicate the process and payment. Please allow appropriate processing time.
  • Do not email filings or payments. For security reasons do not email filings, payment or other confidential information.
  • We accept all major credit cards.
