I have timely filed my application for renewal of my license (or user’s permit) but I have not received my new license (or permit). May I continue in business even though the expiration date shown on my license or permit has passed? If so, for how long?

Yes. You may continue to operate the business pursuant to your current license or permit until the application for renewal is acted upon. [5 U.S.C. 558]
