Doing Business

Every person engaged or intending to engage in any calling, business, occupation, profession, or activity engaged in with the object of gain, benefit, or advantage, in whole or in part within the limits of the City of Greer, South Carolina, is required to pay an annual license tax for the privilege of doing business and obtain a business license as herein provided. License taxes are based upon the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code of the business and the annual gross revenue earned within the city limits of Greer. If you are a new business, your business license tax is calculated on projected gross revenue for the first year of operation.

Dates & Penalty

The required renewal fee shall be paid annually on or before April 30th. For non-payment of all or any part of the correct business license tax, the business license coordinator shall impose and collect a late penalty of five (5%) percent of the unpaid tax for each month or potion thereof after the due date until paid. Penalties shall not be waived.

Partial payment may be accepted, however, no business license shall be issued or renewed until the full amount of the tax due, with penalties, has been paid.


The resident and non-resident license fee for each class of business will be calculated from the Business License Rate Schedule (PDF).
