BUSINESS LICENSE DEPARTMENT
STEPS FOR OBTAINING A BUSINESS LICENSE
Determine if you need a Conditional Use Permit.
At the time of applying for the business license, it will need to be determined whether or not a CUP should be issued. This will be determined by the type of business and zoning of the property on which the business is located. Please ask the Community Development Department for this information.
REGISTER YOUR BUSINESS WITH THE STATE
Each business must first be registered with the State of Utah. This will ensure that the DBA (Doing Business As) name for your business is valid.
Go to https://secure.utah.gov/osbr-user/user/welcome.html. There will be a series of questions for you to answer. The State will send you a certified copy (stamped with the Utah State Seal) of your DBA. You may also log onto the user account you created to print a copy. (You must attach a copy of the CERTIFIED DBA with your Completed Business License Application to our office).
