Business License

What is a Business License?
A Business License is a license to conduct business in a particular city (most Business Licenses are issued by the city where the business resides, or issued by the County when the business is located in an unincorporated area). Generally, a business is required to be licensed if it is subject to County health or safety regulations.
What is the difference between a Business License and a DBA?
Whereas a DBA is issued by the County Clerk/Recorder's Office and allows you to conduct business as a name other than your own, a Business License is issued by the city in which your business resides and allows you to conduct business in that particular city. You may or may not need a business license depending upon your city and the type of business you run.
How do I obtain a Business License?
Signature Filing does not currently file Business Licenses because the rules, regulations and applications can vary drastically between two cities located right next to each other. Because of this, your best bet is to head to your local city hall and have them point you in the right direction.


"I've used Signature Filing twice and will be coming back a third time. The step by step process walked me through without any difficulty. Everything was clear and easy. I can easily check the status of my order and each step is clearly presented so I know exactly where I am in the process. Pricing is affordable. I recommend SF highly."
