The Claremont Municipal Code requires most businesses operating or performing a service within Claremont to apply for and retain a business license (a.k.a., Business Tax Certificate).  These include but are not limited to:

  • Any business in a retail, commercial, or industrial location.
  • Persons who have a home office or use their home as the headquarters of their business.
  • Businesses that are located outside of Claremont, but transact business within Claremont such as contractors, gardeners, repair people, consultants, etc.
  • Commercial or residential property owners renting two or more units.

Licenses are valid for one year and must be renewed annually.  Licensing fees depend on business type and/or gross receipts.  Most businesses will also require special permits and authorization prior to the issuance of a business license.

It is the license holder's responsibility to contact the City if/when they are no longer conducting business.
