The BBB Accreditation fee cannot be deducted as a charitable contribution for federal income tax purposes, but is usually 100% deductible as a business expense (consult tax advisor).

  • New Accredited Businesses pay a one-time enrollment fee of $50.00.
  • The fee is based on full-time employees. Two part-time employees count as one full-time employee. The count should include employees at any additional locations or separate businesses owned by the same principal(s) which are applying for accreditation. 
  • Separate businesses owned by the same principal(s) may be eligible for the discounted fee of $135. (The fee for primary Accredited Business is determined by total employee count, including employees of the separate business.)
  • Additional location(s): $50 per additional location covers BBB Wise Buying Guide listing(s), plaque(s), BBB newsletters and e-mail alerts.
  • Additional WiseBuyingMall website(s) can be provided at $35 per year for each WiseBuyingMall.com website. 
  • Fee of $25 each for additional type-of-business category listing(s) in BBB Wise Buying Guide (one listing provided at no charge for each Accredited Business and with each $50 additional location option – see above). 
  • The BBB Accredited Business Seal for use online is available at no charge for qualifying Accredited Businesses headquartered in this BBB’s service area that have an active website.
  • Please inquire about credit card and other payment plans.
