This depends on the type of business activity, rate classification, whether the business is located inside or outside of the City limits, and the business's gross receipts. The classification list and fee schedules are at the end of the Business License Ordinance. If this is the first time your business has applied for a license in the City of Spartanburg, please call 864-596-2055 for help in properly classifying your business.
You are welcome to call us or email us any time you are not sure whether a location is inside limits! If you need to find the information right away during non-business hours, you can find this information online at the County Assessor's site:
Call, email, or write us with the business name as it appears on your license, the old address, your new address, and a phone number in case we have any questions. If you would like an updated copy of your paper license, please request a reprint, and it will be mailed to you.
If a business is moving into or out of Spartanburg City limits, your rate classification and basis for reporting will change. If the business has reorganized or is under new ownership and the Federal Identification Number or Social Security Number associated with the business has changed, you will need to apply for a new license.
