Business License Information

All businesses operating in Hayward are to apply for a business license. The license charge may be based on:
  • gross receipts
  • number of employees
  • flat rate
  • other method of calculation.
Depending on the type of business, licenses may be issued for one day, or a calendar month, quarter or year. Businesses accrue a penalty of 10% of the amount due, and an additional 10% each month that the license remains unpaid after the delinquency date - to a maximum penalty of 50%.

Call to request that the application be mailed to you. However, the application process has to be done in-person at the Revenue service counter.

Apply in person at:

Revenue Division
City Hall - First Floor
777 B Street
Hayward, CA 94541

For more information, please call Business License at 510-583-4600
