Business License

We are currently unable to accept applications or payments for Business Licenses online, however future improvements are planned that will help us offer this to our customers.  

Customers seeking to obtain a new business license or to renew an expired or expiring business license will want to email to obtain an application. Please include some general information as to the nature of your business in the email. Alternatively, customers can call the Business License Division at (909) 798-7557, however due to our call volumes and front counter traffic, call backs may take anywhere from 1 to 2 business days to return.

Once your application has been submitted along with the appropriate payment, please allow 4 to 6 weeks for processing of the official business license certificate. We strive to process renewals and applications for new business license certificates as quickly as possible, but due to the simultaneous timing of renewals throughout the City our turnaround times can often take longer.

Business licenses are required of all people or corporations conducting business within the City of Redlands. More information regarding the specific provisions of the City’s Municipal Code on business licenses can be found here: Chapter 5.04 - Business Licenses Generally.

Business Licenses are issued by the Revenue Division of the Management Services / Finance Department.  Their office is located at 35 Cajon Street, Suite 15B.  Further information may be obtained by calling (909) 798-7557 or by emailing
