Business Tax Receipt (BTR) (formally known as Occupational License)
Are you opening a new business in the City of Orlando or are you moving your existing business into City limits? The City of Orlando issues licenses to those businesses, professions or occupations that have locations or branch offices within our City limits. The Business Tax Receipt is proof of payment of the business tax. It is required before a business opens.
Before you apply for your Business Tax Receipt, please contact the Mayor’s Business Assistance Office located in our Permitting Services Division (1st floor of City Hall) to ensure that the location you chose for your business is zoned and permitted appropriately.
