Here is a sheet for calculating the renewal amount due by business type and employee number.

A change of business address within San Carlos typically requires a zoning review, payment of a zoning fee and approval by the Planning Department before an updated business registration can be issued.

Ownership is not transferable. Any change in ownership requires a new business registration application, zoning review and payment of fees.

As a courtesy, Renewal Notices are sent to the mailing address on file on an annual basis.  Renewal of a business registration is the  sole responsibility of the business owner, subject to late penalties of 20% per month up to 100% of the business registration. 

For minor changes to business account information, please email us at businessreg@cityofsancarlos.org.
