Sales & Order-Taking / Seller's Permit
Participation in California conventions and trade shows, including sales or taking orders for sales at or during the convention or trade show, generally requires the company to hold either an ongoing or temporary seller’s permit.
For in-state retailers, an ongoing seller’s permit must be obtain for the business of selling tangible personal property. Out-of-state retailers that exceed specific sales thresholds are required to obtain an ongoing seller’s permit. Retailers not exceeding these thresholds are only required to obtain a temporary seller’s permit.
