Doing Business

The Town of Gila Bend requires that anyone doing business within the Town limits must have a current Town of Gila Bend Business License. Vendors for a special event are NOT required to obtain a Town of Gila Bend Business License. Business licenses are based on the Fiscal Year, from July 1st of the current year through June 30th of the following year (example: July 1, 2018 through June 30, 2019). Fees for business licenses vary, depending on the type of license your business requires (see associated fees below). Business licenses must be renewed annually. For your convenience, each year a Business License Renewal Invoice will be mailed to you along with an instructional cover letter. In order to avoid any penalties associated with doing business without a valid business license, your license renewal fee must be received by the Town of Gila Bend prior to July 1st.
