Business Registrations

Congratulations on your decision to start your business in the City of Roseburg............

 

 

We like to keep things simple - so in a nutshell - the City of Roseburg requires registration of those who come into the City limits to sell a product or service. As long as the ownership and location of the business remain the same, this is a one-time registration with a one-time $130.00 non-refundable fee. If a business opens another location or moves to a new location, registration and fee are again required. Payment can be made by cash, check or credit card.

Before you sign a lease or purchase property to start your business, please review the information provided. Starting a business requires preparation and collaboration with the City and/or County. The information provided is designed to help you better understand the requirements and begin preparation for your new business. For more information you can call the City Manager's Office at 541-492-6866 or email ktate@cityofroseburg.org.
