To be able to sell beads & jewelry at the Oakland CA show, there are a few things that need to be done.
- GET A CALIFORNIA RESELLER’S PERMIT If you aren’t already registered with the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) to file/pay taxes you must do that in advance of the show. You may need to already have an EIN to complete this process.
- The City Of Oakland Business Tax Ordinance states Anyone operating or doing business in the City of Oakland is required to have a valid City of Oakland Business License or a City of Oakland Special Event Permit. Oakland based businesses are required to obtain a City of Oakland Business License and pay an annual tax based on their gross receipts. For additional information on obtaining a City of Oakland Business License please visit this link. Out of town vendors (not Oakland based) can obtain a Special Event Permit in lieu of a Business License. The fee for the permit is $90. It is good for three 3-day events within the same calendar year. Here is a link for the special event permit & more information.
- SELLING TO TAX EXEMPT CUSTOMERS To sell to customers that are tax-exempt and have a Reseller’s License, you will need to have them each sign (for your records) a form BOE-230 from the Board of Equalization.
- WE ARE REQUIRED TO GIVE THE CITY OF OAKLAND A LIST OF OUR EXHIBITORS SO BE SURE YOU FILL OUT AND PAY FOR YOUR PERMIT!
We give this information as a guide. It is your responsibility to make sure that you have all the necessary permits and licenses.
