Ventura County Requirements
If you transact business under a fictitious business name, any name other than your surname or have more than one owner, you will need to file a Fictitious Business Name Statement with the County Clerk’s Office. If you accidentally “infringe” upon another business name you may be subject to legal action. Contact the County Clerk’s Office for further information.
A Health Permit from the Ventura County Environmental Health Department may be required if your business involves food sales, public pools/spas, tattooing, body piercing, permanent cosmetics, cosmetology or other business. Contact the County Environmental Health for additional requirements.
