Changing Business Address in Washington State

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?
