Business Licenses

Welcome to the Murrieta Business Licensing. Thank you for bringing your business to Murrieta. We wish you success!

Who Needs a Business License

Every person (1099) or entity planning to engage in business within city limits, regardless of whether the business is subject to taxation or not, must apply for a license, pay applicable fees, and obtain the appropriate approvals in order to procure a license.

"Business" means profession, trade, occupation, gainful activities, and all and every kind of professional, commercial, and industrial calling whether or not carried on for profit.


Please view our FAQ Frequently Asked Questions and Information page for business license related information and questions.
