Business Licensing

On June 24, 2020 Bluffdale City Council passed a pending ordinance regarding business licensing. The final business licensing ordinance will need to be passed by December 24, 2020. Any business license issued prior to the final ordinance being passed is subject to any changes made in the ordinance.

All businesses operating from a location in Bluffdale City are generally required to obtain a business license. However, certain business professions are specifically exempt by the State of Utah from license fees. Even though these professions are exempt from license fees, they typically are not exempt from the rest of the license process including filing a valid license application and completing necessary safety inspections or zoning requirements.

If your business will be located in a commercial zone, it is advisable that you contact the Planning and Zoning department at (801) 849-9422 for specific zoning requirements and restrictions prior to signing a lease or filing a license application. 

If you are not sure that your business requires a license or if you feel that your business may qualify for a special exemption, please complete the exemption application. You may contact the Business License office directly at (801) 254-2200, for clarification.
