Business License

One of the most frequently asked questions to our office is “Where do I get a Business License?”  The County of Santa Cruz, similar to about half of the counties in California, does not require a business license at this time.  You do, however, still need your Fictitious Business Name.  You can find information about that HERE.

If you are applying for a loan, a government contract or other items that require a license to be submitted as part of the paperwork, please “contact us” and we can provide you with a memo specifically for your business regarding our business license policy.
