On November 29th, the Orange County Register ran an article titled “Cheapest O.C. cities for business”. The article discussing the low cost of conducting business in Orange County, relative to the high cost of other cities in CA, and the state as a whole; it uses the recently published Kosmont-Rose Cost of Doing Business Survey as its primary source. The article states, “The annual study helps companies that are contemplating a move or expansion to find the best location”
The Kosmont-Rose survye notes that California remains the costliest state even though the state sales tax rate dropped one percentage point on July 1. Even so, no Orange County cities rate five dollar signs. Seal Beach, Santa Ana, Garden Grove, Placentia and Cypress recieved a $$$$ rating (high cost). Westminster, San Clemente, Huntington Beach, Buena Park, Mission Viejo and Rancho Santa Margarita were rated $$$ (average cost). Yorba Linda, Irvine, Newport Beach, Fullerton, Brea, La Habra, Orange, Aliso Viejo, unincorporated Orange County and San Juan Capistrano were rated low cost ($$); Fountain Valley, Tustin, Lake Forest, Laguna Hills, Laguna Niguel and Costa Mesa were rated very low cost ($).
