Following E.J. Franks Construction, Inc. v. Sahota (2014) 226 Cal.App.4th 1123, this decision holds that Bus. & Prof. Code 7031 does not preclude a contractor’s recovery of compensation where at all times during the performance of work under the construction contract, the contractor’s corporation was duly licensed–even though when the contractor entered into the contract and when he assigned it to the newly formed corporation, only he, not the corporation, held the contractor’s license.  The licensing law’s purpose is not to forbid change from individual to corporate form but to assure qualified person conducts actual construction work.
