When there are no employees actually working in the City, how is the fee determined?

If you do not have any employees actually working in the City and do not have a physical location/presence in the City, but are providing services in the City as is the case with telecommunications providers for example, a Non-Resident Business License is required and the minimum license fee of $132.00 in 2023 would apply.

This does not pertain to a City of Redmond Business with a physical location/presence in the City and meeting the definition of "Engaging in Business" as outlined in the Redmond Municipal Code Chapter 5.04.030 - General Business Regulations - Definitions, that has employees telecommuting/working remotely outside of the City. All employee hours worked for that business, including those hours worked remotely and/or from home, must be reported for the purpose of determining the fee per the definition of "Employee".
