Business Tax Online Application

Welcome to the City of Beverly Hills!

If you are a contractor pulling a building or technical permit for this job you don't need to register. You will pay the business tax when you pay for your permit.

If you have any questions, please contact us at or (310) 285-2424.

The City requires any person or entity conducting, managing, or engaged in any business, trade, profession or occupation in Beverly Hills to obtain a business tax certificate prior to commencing business activities. Business tax certificates are issued once a completed application and payment are received. Accounts will be considered delinquent and late fees will be assessed if a completed application and payment are not received within the first 30 days of operation.

Before you begin the online application, please review the information below:

1. The online application must be completed in one session, as you will not be able to save and return at a later time.

2. If the application is deemed incomplete, you will receive an email requesting additional information or forms.

3. Once your application is accepted, you will receive an email indicating the amount due and instructions on how to make a payment online.

4. Registration is valid through December 31.
