Most businesses should have received a bill for the 2021-22 Business Registration Fee and do not need to file a return. If you received instructions from our office to complete the 2021-22 Business Registration Renewal (Due November 1, 2021), use the button below to download the renewal form.  Please fill out, print and sign the form before mailing it to the address provided along with your payment.

2021-22  Business Registration Renewal Form 

If your only business activity in San Francisco is as a driver for a TAXI and/or a Transportation Network Company (TNC), you are no longer required to register as a business, or renew your existing business registration. 

Business Registration Fees are based on San Francisco gross receipts or payroll expense for the current calendar year, and the business activity types selected. Use Schedule B if your business consists solely of the business activities of Certain Services (e.g. Repair/Maintenance, Personal/Laundry, Civic Orgs), Retail Trade, and/or Wholesale Trade (described on page 1 of the Application).  If your business does anything else, use Schedule A.
