Retail businesses of all sorts including toy stores, clothing shops, photography businesses and general merchandisers need licenses and permits. In most cases, retail businesses take relatively few licenses – however being registered for all state and local taxes is important as is having any needed general business licenses.
Anaheim, a hub for amusement parks and conventions, tries to make business licensing easy by providing one central office for business licenses as well as zoning and business permits. Customer service representatives help entrepreneurs figure out every aspect of coming into compliance with city regulations. However, in most cases, county, state and federal regulations and requirements also apply. Although tourism is bar far the dominant industry of Anaheim, the city doesn't just rely on Walt Disney to keep its economy moving. Other major businesses in Anaheim include AT&T, Banco Popular, Bridgford Foods, CKE Restaurants, Fisker Automotive, Fujitsu, Ganahl Lumber, General Dynamics, Hewlett Packard, Isuzu, Kaiser Foundation, L-3 Communications, Pacific Sunwear, Panasonic, Seagate, Sunny Delight, Taormina Industries Targus,Tenet Healthcare, Universal Alloy, YKK Corporation, Yogurtland, and Zyxel.
