According to the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry (DLI), contractors have until 11:59 pm on March 31st, 2017 to renew their BC license. Contractors will be charged an $80.00 late fee for any renewal payments processed after the deadline.

  • A late fee of $80 is automatically assessed when a completed renewal is not received in DLI’s offices by the license expiration date.
  • By law, a completed license renewal submitted by March 1 is automatically deemed to be a timely renewal.
  • DLI cannot guarantee that renewals submitted after March 1 will be processed prior to the expiration date, and a license cannot be considered to be renewed until it is completely processed and approved by DLI.
  • After March 31, municipalities cannot issue building permits to contractors whose license renewals have not been processed and approved.
  • The late applications with the $80 late fee are accepted for two years after your license renewal date.

We submit your continuing education directly to the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry using your qualified individual license, examples include QB123456 or QC987654.
