Title 11, Chapter 110 of the Village Code requires persons and entities conducting, maintaining or operating a business, occupation or activity to obtain and display a valid business license. Businesses regulated by the Federal Government or State of Illinois are exempt from village licensing. Business licenses are issued on a calendar-year basis and expire December 31. Renewal notices are sent to licensed businesses in November.
For General information, select the Business Resource Guide.
Business license fees can be found in the village's Fee Schedule. The fee for business licenses issued after July 1, of the same calendar year, will be pro-rated at one-half of the annual fee.
Please contact the Finance Division with any questions at 847.923.4546 or 4547.
If a business license is licensed by the State of Illinois (for example, Doctors, Accountants, Lawyers, Financial Institutions, etc.), the business must be REGISTERED in Schaumburg with a Business Registration Form. The form must be completed annually and submitted with a copy of a valid state license. A Village of Schaumburg business license will not be issued. However, the State of Illinois license must be displayed at the business as proof of licensing. For questions, contact the Finance Division at 847.923.4546 or 4547.
