Do I need a license to start a home-based business?

Yes, prior to issuing a business registration (license) you will need to be approved for a home occupation permit (HOP). A home occupation permit application can be downloaded from the forms and applications page on this site. For more detailed information, you may contact Associate Planner I Freddy Carrillo at 805-517-6224.
