Home Businesses Could See Drop in Fees

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: The local home-based business community is welcoming the possibility of new cuts to business licensing fees.



City council voted Tuesday to seriously consider a new fee system that would see $162 annual fees for commercial businesses, home offices and music teachers. They would also lower the license fee for home-based operations and workshops or visiting customers to $243. Compare those new rates they're considering to the current system, where commercial businesses pay $88 per year and home-based businesses pay anywhere from $220 to $545 per year.


Rod Leland, a local entrepreneur who spoke for a representative group of home-based businesses, called the change a significant step for Lethbridge.


Home-based businesses and business in general drive the city,” Leland told Country 95 News. “There are businesses that operate nationally that have started as ideas on paper napkins in living rooms in Lethbridge. So fostering business, encouraging entrepreneurship in general is just really important.”


Council will officially vote on the changes Monday.
