Welcome to the beautiful & thriving City of Menifee Business Community! As part of the City’s Municipal Code ‘Business License & Regulation Program’ and in order to protect the public health, safety, and welfare of City residents and to ensure that each business is conducted in compliance with applicable federal, state and local laws, regulations and ordinances all businesses located and operating within the City are required to be properly licensed.
The Business License & Regulation Program is not intended to impose any form of taxation on the business community nor to collect in fees more money than is necessary to recover the administrative costs of processing an application for the issuance or renewal of a business license.
Certified Access Specialist Program - CASp
On October 11, 2017, Governor Brown signed into law Assembly Bill (AB) 1379, which changes the State CASp fee starting January 1, 2018. This bill accomplishes the following:
Removes the sunset provision for the CASp fee, establishing it as a permanent fee.
Increases the fee to $4 for six years from January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2023. The fee then reverts back to $1 beginning January 1, 2024.
During the six-year period of the increased fee, the municipality will retain 90% of the fees collected, remitting 10% to the State. When the fee reverts back to $1, the municipality portion will also revert to 70%, with 30% remitted to the State.
Senate Bill 1186 (Chapter 383, 2012) requires a one-dollar additional fee to be paid by any applicant for local business license, permit or similar instrument when it is issued or renewed. The fee applies to applications and renewals filed between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2018 and it is collected by the issuing jurisdiction (City, County, or City and County).
