Business Licenses

Requirements & Fees


All entities and persons doing business in the incorporated area of the City of Dublin (including subcontractors) are required to have a current business license. Most businesses (the primary exception being for nonprofit organizations) pay a $50 registration fee each year for their business license in Dublin, which is prorated on a monthly basis for the first year the business began operation in Dublin. For business license purposes, the year begins October 1 and ends September 30.

Lowest Business License Fee in the Tri-Valley Area


The City of Dublin has the lowest fee in the Tri-Valley area for a business license. The City only charges the amount necessary to recover its regulatory costs instead of basing its fee on the amount of gross revenue generated or staff employed by a business, as many other cities do, which often results in a substantially higher fee.
