How to Get a Small Business License in Delaware


You can apply for a Delaware business license on the Delaware One Stop platform. You’ll submit a business license application as part of the account creation process, along with a $75 fee.

Most successful applicants receive their official Delaware business license within 10 days to one month. In the meantime, a temporary license can be printed after completing the account creation process on One Stop.

A business license can also be obtained by mail. Download the “Combined Registration Application for State of Delaware Business License and/or Withholding Agent” (Form CRA). Complete parts A, B, and C, and mail the completed form along with a check payment for the $75 fee. The mailing address is Division of Revenue, PO Box 8750, Wilmington, DE 19899.

Should you need further assistance with the mail-in application, call the Division of Revenue at (302) 577-8778.
