The City of Chula Vista welcomes your business to our City.
A business license is required in the City of Chula Vista for any person who transacts, engages in or carries on any business within the corporate limits of the city (CVMC 5.02.020).
To obtain a business license for a new business, submit a completed Business License Application at the Business License counter. The more complete and accurate your business license application is, the easier it will be for your potential customers to find you through the online 'Business Finder,' promoted by the City.
For home-based businesses, a Home Occupation Permit must also be submitted with the Business License Application.
Changes in ownership, address or use require completion of a new application.
