    Renewing Your Appraiser's Licence

    The fee for renewing the Appraiser’s Licence is $125.

    What you need to do

    A notification containing a unique code will be sent to your registered mobile number and email address before the commencement of the renewal period. Please use the unique code to activate your renewal application in the GoBusiness Licensing portal; the code will expire on 21 Dec.

    If you do not receive the unique code due to a change of contact details,  log in to the GoBusiness Licensing portal and complete the renewal with the Renewal Request Number (RRN) for Appraiser’s Licence. The RRN  can be found under Licences Due for Renewal.

    To receive notifications, please update your profile with your latest contact details in the portal.

    What happens if I do not renew my licence by 21 Dec?

    When will I obtain my renewed licence?
    Upon verification of your credentials and successful payment of fees, the licence certificate will be generated immediately and made available for downloading. You can retrieve the electronic copy of your renewed licence on the GoBusiness Licensing portal.

    • Letter from your current employer stating the effective date from which you will be acting on behalf of the company.

    Your licence will be updated with the new employer details upon successful verification of credentials and payment. You can retrieve the electronic copy of your amended licence on the GoBusiness Licensing portal.

    What is GoBusiness Licensing?

    GoBusiness Licensing, previously known as LicenceOne, is a one-stop portal for businesses to apply for licences they need easily and efficiently. The portal allows business owners to obtain multiple licences simultaneously in a simplified application and payment process. It is a secured government portal owned by MTI.

    How do I apply through GoBusiness Licensing?

    For first-time users, you are required to log in to GoBusiness Licensing via SingPass. A one-time update of your profile is required; this will be used for future logins and subsequent applications.

    I am an existing licensed holder and recently changed my contact details. Do I need to update you?

    If you have changed your contact details since your last renewal, please update your contact information at GoBusiness Licensing or inform us at [email protected] in order to continue receiving notifications.

    I have not received a notification for the renewal of Appraiser’s Licence. How do I renew my licence?

    If you have not received a notification with the Renewal Request Number (RRN) to activate your renewal application, you can log in to GoBusiness Licensing, and complete the renewal with the Renewal Request Number (RRN) for Appraiser’s Licence. The RRN can be found under Licences Due for Renewal. Please update your profile with the latest contact details to receive notifications.

    Can I delegate my renewal application to my company?

    As the Appraiser’s Licence is issued to an individual and not to the company, corporate login is not available. Individual licence holders would need to log in with your Singpass and validate your submission.

    Are there any changes to the licence criteria and fees?

    There are no changes to the existing licence criteria and fees.
