We’re in Washington, Ballard (Seattle) to be precise. We recently move the business and then needed to update our business records with the State. In Washington every business is assigned a Unified Business Identifier (UBI). One would think that I could update my business address in one location but…nope.

Department of Revenue / Business Licensing

First I have to call to determine if a new Business License Application is necessary. Call in and press zero then wait on hold a few minutes. Change via phone and will receive confirmation mail in 7 to 10 days.

See Here.

Department of Labor and Industries

I was able to call them and update the information over the telephone; no problem. Only took a few minutes.

Employment Security

This department has a downloadable form-fill PDF which you can then mail or fax back to them. If you don’t have a fax machine use Phaxio.

Each City

You may also have a license for each city you do business or have a presence in, Seattle, Bellevue, and Olympia for example. For the City of Seattle I couldn’t remember my password and neither did my password manager, I’ve tried to reset but received a technicial error.

Where is the “Change of Address as a Service” play?
