Starting a New Business

The City of Perris strives to make it easy for you to do business here. With this in mind, the City has created both an online guide and a printed guide to help you get started.

  • If you are running a home-based business, you simply need to obtain a business license.
  • If you are operating any other type of business, you will need a certificate of occupancy, a business license, and your business will have to pass Building and Safety and Fire inspections. See our online development guide for a step-by-step process.

The forms section of this web site has a business license application form and a guide that you can print.
