Business License or Permit
The City of Mission requires that an individual or company obtain a permit or license for many activities within the City. Most of these licenses or permits involve payment of either a standard or variable fee, require the use of a standard application form, and must be applied for in person at City Hall. The license period is from June 30th to July 1st annually.
Business Occupational License
Any person or firm, as defined in the ordinance, engaging in any business, trade, or profession, or providing any service for profit is required to secure a business occupational license. Mission requires business licenses only for those businesses that have a physical location within the City of Mission (office, retail or home occupation). Contractor licensing, for contractors simply performing work in Mission, is separate and is handled through our Community Development Department.
For information on City ordinances governing business occupational licenses, see Chapter 605 of the City Code.
Business Occupational License Application
The license fee is to be paid in advance in one annual payment and, in most instances, is based upon the square footage occupied.
