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.
The annual business license fee established for various categories of business can be found in the village's Fee Schedule. The fee for business licenses issued after July 1 of any calendar year will be one-half of the annual fee.
Please contact the Collector's Division with any questions at 847.923.4546 or 4547.
If a business license is obtained by State of Illinois (for example, Doctors, Accountants, Lawyers, Financial Institutions, etc.), your business must be REGISTERED in Schaumburg. A Business Registration Form must be completed annually and submitted along with a copy of your state license as proof of licensing. No business license or receipt will be issued by the Village. For questions, contact the Finance Division at 847.923.4546 or 4547.
