All businesses require a Business Registration, issued by the City. Contractors and others doing business within the City but based outside the City also require a Business Registration. If you’re planning to start a new business, it’s important to check with the Planning Department to determine if your business is allowed in the zone where you plan to operate.
For more information on Business Registration, call 951-332-6464, ext. 224 or email the department. If you plan to operate a business from your home, check with the Planning Department to see if it qualifies as a Home Occupation. Home occupations are businesses operated out of a home, typically in a residential zone, and require approval of a Home Occupation Permit through the Planning Department.
