  • Property Fees

    Property  Fees  represent  the  single  largest  Revenue Earner for the City of Belmopan.  The Council’s authority to charge property fees is vested in the Town’s Property Tax Act, Chapter 65 of the Laws of Belize.  Fees are calculated at a rate of 2% of the Annual Site Value of the properties.

    Property Fees are due and payable on April 1 of each year. Citizens have the option to pay in two equal installments as follows:  On 15th May and 15thOctober of each year. However, if the payment due on 15th  May is not paid on or before that date, the entire amount then becomes payable immediately.

  • Trade License

    The Trade License Act, Chapter 66 of the Laws of Belize provides for the establishment of a Trade License Board for the City of Belmopan. The Mayor shall be the Chairman of the Board and the City Administrator shall be the Clerk to the Board. There are currently 770 businesses in the City of Belmopan.

    The Board shall annually assess each trade and levy a fee for every license granted. Where any fee is assessed by the Board in respect of any trade carried on within the city, such fee shall be payable within thirty days of the notice of assessment; and where the fee is not paid

    within this time, a further amount equivalent to ten percent of the fee shall be payable in respect of every month or part of a month during which such fee remains unpaid.

    The annual license fee payable in respect of the carrying on of any trade shall be an amount equal to one-fourth of the annual value of the premises in which the business is carried on. The Council categorizes businesses and levies a Trade License Fee (not exceeding ¼ of the annual value)
