What information is needed to obtain a business license?

To obtain a business license, a completed application (PDF) with information about the business and an estimate of gross receipts to be earned in the City of Napa during the first period is required. If the business is located in the City of Napa, a zoning clearance or a home occupation use permit from the Planning Division is necessary. Certain applicants may also require clearance and special permits from other City or County departments.
