Business License Online Renewal
Many City of Vista business licenses can be renewed online. Businesses eligible for on-line renewal have a PIN number printed at the bottom of the renewal form. Please note that if there is no PIN number on the renewal form, you need to renew the license by mail. Be sure to use an 8 character business license account number and PIN number from your renewal form or from the e-mail the city may have sent you. Online renewals are accepted 30 days prior to and up to 90 days after your license expires. If you need to renew outside this window, please contact our office for assistance.
If there are no significant changes on the license and we do not have questions about the renewal, you should receive the printed business license in 10-15 days after you receive notice that the payment is accepted. If further information is needed or if there are significant changes on the license, we will contact you to let you know what else is needed before the license can be printed.
