California Business Laws

California business laws regulate large and small businesses, from insurance to livestock management. Any business entity buying and selling products in California must have a seller's permit. Small business owners have as many regulations as big corporations.

Because of the unique nature of California's legislative system, Californians can vote on some types of business laws. Assembly bills and new laws go to the voters before becoming regulations, so business owners have a say in what affects their trade.

Although most of California's laws resemble other states, California has a long history of going its own way. As a result, California has its own business laws and regulations similar to but different from the rest of the nation. FindLaw provides a concise summary of some of these laws that affect large and small companies.
