Business Licensing is in a heavy renewal period (Oct - Jan) and the processing time for all hard-copy applications will be delayed. To avoid delays, you are encouraged to file online (if available) for immediate processing.
* Note: renewing lapsed business licenses must, per 12 AAC 12.040(c) & (d), pay for the lapsed years plus the current licensing year(s).
For additional information see Business Licensing FAQs (#9 What if my business license has expired?)
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.
