Business Licensing FAQs

Who Needs To Register Their Business?

All businesses in Utah are required by law to register with the Utah Department of Commerce either as a “DBA” (Doing Business As), corporation, limited liability company or limited partnership. In addition, certain types of businesses need special licenses and permits in order to operate, i.e., insurance agents, contractors, doctors and dry cleaners, etc. Businesses are also required to obtain a business license from the city or county in which they are located.

Why Is It That Businesses Required To Register?

Registration insures that the business name cannot be legally used by another business. The more you use the registered name and become known to the public by name, the more legal protection your name earns against "predatory encroachment" by other businesses. Registration is required so that a comprehensive state registry of all business and corporate information is available for public reference. This information is vital to an orderly legal system and marketplace. Without it, the public or other businesses may have no way of knowing the persons with whom they are doing business. In addition, registration is required by law to provide public notice as to who owns or stands behind a business entity. You cannot file a lawsuit in court as a business if your business is not registered. Registration enables careful business people to verify information about companies with whom they do business.
