The City of Santa Barbara Business License Lookup lists most businesses that hold a current City Business License. The information presented here is gathered from City Business License Applications and Renewals. It is updated weekly. If a business has recently renewed or applied for a license, this business will be listed when the NEW license has been issued. Because this information is "self-reported" by individual businesses, the City is unable to guarantee the accuracy or timeliness of the data. To facilitate quick responses, query results are limited to a maximum of 100.
