Do I need a business license?

If you are charging a fee for a service, you are considered to be in business and would need a business license, whether or not you have a fixed place of business or are working out of your home. Even if you rent space from an established business, such services include:

  • Bookkeeping
  • Hair stylist
  • Janitorial
  • Manicurist
  • Yard work

If you sell merchandise, either retail or wholesale, whether from your home, a commercial business location, or come into the city from outside of the city limits of Paso Robles to conduct sales, you need a business license.
