Renewing A Business License

Business License certificates are valid for one year from the day and month in which your business started. A renewal form will be mailed to you prior to your license expiration date.

  • Upon receipt of the renewal form, please verify that all information is current and accurate.
  • If there is any change of information on the renewal form such as change of location, change of business description, or change of ownership and the business is located in the City, the changes must be submitted to the Business License Division located at 10500 Civic Center Dr., Rancho Cucamonga, 91730 in person as this may require Planning Department approval.

  • Complete the section that asks for your actual gross receipts/payroll for the prior twelve (12) month period.
  • Follow the table to calculate your business license fee due. Please ensure that calculations are calculated properly to avoid overpayments.
  • The $1.00 fee for SB 1186 must be included with the license fee payment.
  • Payment must accompany the renewal form.
  • Your payment and renewal form must be received by the due date indicated on the renewal form to avoid late charges.
