Business License Registration

Registration Form
A Registration Form (PDF) for a City business license may be obtained at the Administration Department at Liberal City Hall or  you may request that one be mailed to you.

Once you have the registration form, please read it thoroughly. All applicable sections of the registration form must be completed. When describing the nature of your business, please be specific.

A complete business license registration packet consists of the registration form and copies of any City, county, state, or federal permits or licenses required to conduct business. Some examples include:
  • Child Care
  • Retailers’ Sales Tax Registration Certificate
  • State Food Service License
Submission & Fees
A completed registration and supporting documents including a $5 annual license fee can be submitted in person or mailed to:
P.O. Box 2199
Liberal, Kansas 67905

Processing the Business License

After your registration, support documents, and fee have been submitted to the City of Liberal, the registration package is reviewed by various City departments for compliance with zoning and other requirements.

It is then entered into the system and a business license and Certificate of Occupancy is generated. Both the Business License and Certificate of Occupancy will be sent to the mailing address listed on the registration. This process may take up to 3 weeks.
