Business Certificate Requirements
The City of Folsom Municipal Code requires that ALL businesses operating within the city limits obtain a business certificate. Issuance of a city certificate does NOT constitute permission to operate the stated business. Applicants are also responsible for maintaining compliance with all other applicable laws and regulations, including, but not limited to, zoning, health, building and fire.
Business Certificate Application Form
Please go to www.revds.com for all necessary documents and further instruction.
All applications must be submitted (along with all applicable fees) directly to MuniServices.
Business Certificate Renewals
Folsom business certiicates expire on June 30th of each year. Renewal notices will be mailed by mid June, with payment due by July 31st. Penalty fees are charged to any business that fails to renew by the due date. It is the responsibility of the business owner to renew their certificate. If a renewal notice has not been received by July, please call 866.240.3665, or email email@example.com
Notification of Changes to Businesses
The business owner is responsible for notifying the City of Folsom of any changes to the business. There is no charge for most updates, unless a reprint is required (see below). Notification for most changes (including business closure) can be by phone or email communication.
· Change in Ownership - Business certificates are non-transferable, so a change in ownership requires that the old certificate be closed, and a new application be submitted.
· Change of business name / DBAs – The business certificate is specific to the business name, and therefore a separate application must be submitted for each DBA or name change.
· Home Occupation address change - All Home Occupation address changes need to be reviewed by the City of Folsom, Planning Division. Please refer to www.revds.com, or call 866.240.3665 for further information.
