California debt collection license requirement: Overview and analysis

Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2021 | 2:00 p.m. ET

With recent passage of the Debt Collection Licensing Act, California joins a growing list of jurisdictions that require licensure to conduct debt collection activities, affecting thousands, if not tens of thousands, of entities. Debt collectors have until the end of the year to submit their applications, leaving little time to submit their materials and ensure they can continue to operate pending application approval. Who is covered, what the application requires, and how the process works are pressing questions for debt collectors currently operating in California.
