Business Licensing

New Businesses:

Welcome to the Village of Norridge. We hope to make your application process as easy as possible.

All business licenses are issued after the following:

  1. Completed occupancy inspection by our Building Department.
  2. Business license application completed in its entirety.
  3. Inspection of business by licensing inspector prior to opening.
  4. Payment of business license fees and water escrow.

Occupancy Inspections:

Once you have chosen a location for your new business, you must arrange for an occupancy inspection from the Village of Norridge Building Department (708-453-4351). This inspection is necessary to ensure that the building meets today’s specifications concerning codes.

Business License Applications:

At the time of the occupancy inspection you will be given a business license application. NO business license will be issued until the location has been issued an Occupancy Certificate. Both parts of the application must be completed in their entirety. Failure to complete both forms could result in a delay in your business license.

Inspection of Business by Licensing Inspector Prior to Opening:

A Licensing Department Inspector will come out and take an inventory of everything you plan on selling (including vending machines). Once this inventory is completed, you will be notified in 24-48 hours as to the amount of your license. Fees depend on the type of business, amount of inventory, etc. (See Business License Fees)

Payment of Business License Fees & Water Escrow:

Once you have been notified of your fees, you will need to come into the Village Hall to remit your application, license fees and water escrow. The water escrow is calculated on an average of the last two months of water usage (minimum $100.00).

Licenses are good from May 1st to April 30th. Renewal notices for established businesses will be mailed by March 31st. New licenses issued on or after November 1st, the license fee shall be one-half of the yearly license fee for the unexpired term of the license year.

Late Fees:

Late fees will be assessed as follows: May 16th – June 15th – 10 % of original fee June 16th – July 15th – 20% of original fee July 16th on – 25% of original fee
