Overview of Process
  • Submit the form in the month your renewal is due. Forms received prior to your renewal month will not be processed and cannot be saved until your renewal month.
  • Any past due business license account balance must be paid in full prior to requesting an appeal. Payments may be made using the online system at newportbeachca.gov/payments.
  • Businesses will be notified of the City's final decision within 15 business days of their submittal.
  • If your business qualifies for the waiver, the account will be automatically adjusted and no further invoice will be sent.
  • If your business license expiration date is 15 or more days past due, you must renew and submit payment to avoid the imposition of penalties. Please note, if your business does not qualify for the waiver program and the appeal form was not received within 15 days after your expiration date, penalties will accrue and be due and payable. If you have made payment and qualify for the waiver a full refund will be issued within 30 days.
