Additional Information

You will need the following information to complete the renewal and to calculate the business registration fee:

  • Your 2023 taxable San Francisco gross receipts 
  • The business activities that describe your business
  • Average number of employees per week

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.
