Registered Business Locations - FAQ

​Registered Businesses is one of the most used datasets on the open data portal. Below are some commonly asked questions to help you.

How do I change my listing?

In order to change your business address, you must do so formally with the Treasurer-Tax Collector. The registered businesses dataset on the open data portal comes from the system maintained by the Treasurer-Tax Collector. If you need to make changes to your account, you can do so here: https://etaxstatement.sfgov.org/accountupdate/. Please do not submit address changes to DataSF, we can only refer you to the above website and cannot make these changes on your behalf. Please note: Address changes take time to reflect in the dataset as it only updates once per week on Tuesdays.

Looking up a Business Account Number

Some departments have forms that require your Business Account Number. This number is assigned by the Treasurer-Tax Collector. Some forms reference the registered businesses dataset on the open data portal as a place you can find your number, and you can generally find your number here.
