Do I need a business license?

The City does not require businesses to obtain a business license in order to operate. However, we encourage businesses to complete a business registration form for emergency contact information and to be placed on the City’s mailing list to receive information on upcoming business seminars and workshops. Some businesses may also require a Law Enforcement Review. For a list of those businesses, contact the Orange County Sheriff’s Department at (714) 647-1868. You should also check with the City's Community Development Department to obtain a zoning confirmation. Residents who are interested in starting a home-based business are encouraged to review the Ordinance found on the website listed above. The Zoning Confirmation form is available at the City’s Planning Counter and also online

here.
