One of the first things you will need to do is obtain a business licence (Schedule of Fees).  All businesses located in, or providing services within Village boundaries must hold a valid business licence.  For a new business download the Village’s Business Licence Form, for an existing business download the Business Licence Renewal Form, or you can request a copy of either via email chase@chasebc.ca or visit the office at 826 Okanagan Avenue.

Business licences are valid from January 1 to December 31 of the year in which they are purchased. Be aware you may be required to obtain permits or licences from the Province (i.e if you are opening a food service you will be required to have a health permit and if you require a liquor licence you will need a permit from the Liquor Control Branch).

If you are opening any business in a commercial site within the Village of Chase you will be required to have an annual Fire inspection by the Chase Fire Dept.

Renew your business licence by March 31st to take advantage of a discount in your premium!
