Smile FFL - Change of address requirements?

I'm still in the early stages of applying to be an FFL in Kern County. I've already established my LLC and I'm waiting on a few things to come together before submitting for a business license and COE.

I found out today that there is a 50/50 chance I'm going to have to change addresses sometime later this year. I'm getting really cheap rent on my retail space, so I'm at the mercy of the landlord on this one. He's got another location that might be better for me.

I want to know the process and costs for an FFL to change address. Both locations are suitably zoned (county) with the same retail use code. I've got the business set up in an LLC, so that would need to be changed also.

I'd like to get the ball rolling if it's not too difficult to change my address later. Again, I'm not positive that I would have to relocate anyways. Please share your thoughts on the process and costs required to change location so I can make a more informed decision.

File notice with ATF before the move so they can give you the thumbs up. They have to look at local zoning.

Its not difficult at all.

In my experience the ATF doesn't look at the zoning. They just ask you have your local business license since the posession of that basically shows all that stuff has been vetted locally. I think the process from an inspection standpoint of DOJ / ATF is the same, so plan ahead 90 days or so at least if you're going to have to move.
