Where can I find copies of the City's budget or financial documents?
A:

http://santaclaraca.gov/index.aspx?page=118
Do I need a license if I run a business out of my home?
A:
Yes, a home-based business is required to obtain a Business Tax Certificate. Businesses operating out of the home are required to apply in-person at the Planning Department at City Hall.
I just purchased an existing business. Can I use the previous owner’s business license?
A:
No, unless a business is a corporation and the Tax ID is not changing, a Business Tax Certificate is non-transferrable. As a new owner, you are required to submit a new Business License Application to cover the business operation under your ownership.
What if I move my business to a new location?
A:
Any changes to your business (i.e., location, type of business, business entity, ownership, etc.) will require a new Business License Application to be submitted. If the business is no longer located in the City of Santa Clara, a written notification from the business owner must be submitted to close the Business Tax Certificate.
How can I get a copy of my business license?
A:
A written request and a fee is required to obtain a replacement copy of your certificate.
