Beaufort to help businesses with online transactions

Two additional training sessions have been scheduled for Beaufort’s new online payment system for business license renewals and hospitality/accommodations tax payments. The sessions replace two workshops that were cancelled recently due to Hurricane Matthew.

The goal of the online service is to improve customer service. The sessions will familiarize business owners with the process and help them create their log-in access as well as receive personalized attention in getting set up.

Participants should bring their own laptops or tablet computers. Although the sessions are scheduled for two hours, participants may leave once their online account is established and they are comfortable with the online system.

The workshops will be held in Beaufort City Hall’s first floor at 1911 Boundary St. They will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1; and from 3-5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 2

The city is partnering with local chambers of commerce to promote the workshops.
