Business License

City of Loma Linda Business License

It is a requirement of the City of Loma Linda that any business, trade, profession, calling or occupation conducting business within the City should procure a Business License. As stated in the City of Loma Linda Municipal Code, Chapter 5 (Link to M.C.), a Business License is a business tax paid to the City in order to conduct business legally within the City limits. The purpose of the license is to generate revenue for the City to provide Street maintenance, police and fire protection, and many other community services. To avoid the assessment of penalties your license must be obtained prior to conducting business. 

Please see below for new procedures for a new application, renewal and payment.



The City of Loma Linda has contracted with HdL Companies to assist the business community for all their business licensing needs. Effective December 22, 2020, the City of Loma Linda will convert to online business license processing. The HdL Business Support Center will provide the business community with support for all aspects of licensing including application, payment, certificate issuance, and general assistance.

The Business Support Center offers telephone support hours (Monday through Friday - 8 am to 5 pm) via a toll-free telephone number at (909) 284-8140 or via email at [email protected]. To file, renew, or pay for a license balance on-line, please visit
