Business Licensing

In order to be eligible for a business license, the property must be located within the Lawrenceville city limits. A Lawrenceville mailing address does not ensure the property is within the city limits.

All businesses within the City of Lawrenceville must have a current Business License/Occupational Tax Certificate.


  • All licenses expire yearly on December 31st
  • Renewals will be mailed out November 1st
  • Failure to receive renewal does not exempt business from making payment by the due date
  • Any payment received after December 31st will be charged a $25 late payment penalty
  • After January 31st, unpaid licenses are subject to termination
  • Renewal fees must be paid separately from utility account payments


To close a business, please notify the Business License at City Hall in writing or via email at Occupation Tax Office.

Please contact Planning and Development with any questions by calling 678-407-6583.
