Businesses within the City of La Cañada Flintridge must have a valid Business License. This include store fronts, professional offices, contractors and home based businesses.
Home-Based Businesses must also have an Home Occupation Permit in addition to a Business License. Home-based businesses are permitted if certain criteria are met as set forth in the Municipal Code. The fees for a home-based business are based on whether the business is full-time or part-time (20 hours per week or less). There is also a one-time fee of $25 for processing all home occupation permits.
Note: On September 19, 2012, Governor Brown signed into law SB-1186, which adds a state fee of $1 on every application or renewal of a business certificate (or equivalent instrument). This new law is effective January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2017. From January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2023, a fee of $4 will be added to every application or renewal of a business certificate (or equivalent instrument). This law requires all cities and counties within California to collect the $4 state fee.
