Business registration renewal
due by May 31, 2022
New this year
Most businesses that have previously reported under $50,000 in Gross Receipts and zero employees received a bill and are not required to file a renewal. If this describes your business, you can follow the instructions on your bill to pay online, mail, or in person.
Steps to renew
1. Prepare the information you’ll need to renew and pay online:
a. Business Account Number (BAN)
Find your 7-digit number on your Business Registration Certificate. Or you may look it up here.
b. Last 4 digits of your Taxpayer Identification Number
For sole proprietors, this may be your Social Security Number.
For LLC’s and corporations, this may be your EIN.,
c. Online PIN
Scroll down for how to find your business's online PIN.
d. Your 2021 taxable San Francisco gross receipts
e. The business activities that describe your business
Select from a list or check “other”
If you’re unsure, you can find your NAICS code by searching by your business activity here. Then, match the first two numbers of your NAICS to the list.
f. Average number of employees per week
2. File online
3. Pay by credit card, check, or ACH/Wire transfer
What’s the online PIN?
Your 8-character PIN is printed on the registration renewal notice from the Treasurer and Tax Collector’s Office. It is also on previous registration renewal notices, including when you registered your business.
Your 8-character PIN was MAILED to you. It is NOT the generic PIN, 6xmdhhpf, that you may have received in an email when you initially registered your business. That generic PIN won’t work if entered.
If you can’t find your PIN, you can request a new one here. This can take 3-5 business days.
You must have a PIN to complete your business renewal.
Closing your business
If you are no longer in business, go to Business Account Update and close your account.
Just like in Step 1 above, you will need to enter your 7-digit Business Account Number (BAN), the last four 4 digits of your Tax ID, and your Online PIN. Once logged in, select “Business Account Closure.”
