How much does it cost to register my San Francisco business?

If you are a new business, your registration fee is determined based on the tax of your estimated payroll expense liability according to the Application for Business Tax Registration. In San Francisco, the payroll expense tax rate is 1.5%. The Office of Small Business provides a detailed chart with the appropriate business registration fee based on the estimated tax on payroll expenses for your business.
