Once the business entity is formed or registered with the California Secretary of State it must obtain the necessary licenses and/or permits. The Secretary of State does not issue licenses or permits for business entities. Please refer to the CalGold (California Government: On–Line to Desktops) website for information about business license/permit requirements. CalGold’s online database provides links and contact information to agencies that administer and issue business licenses, permits and registration requirements from all levels of government.
