What is a business license?

A business license is a tax for doing business. The San Rafael Municipal Code requires that you obtain a license to conduct business within the city limits of San Rafael, even if your physical office is located outside city limits. A business license is not a permit. It is not evidence that the holder is qualified to operate the business or that the business is being conducted in compliance with applicable legal requirements.
