Department of Commerce and Commercial Code
Most businesses are required to collect and remit sales tax for goods (and some services) they provide to consumers. You can obtain a sales tax number at the “One Stop Business Registration” website at the same time you are applying for a business name. If you have any questions about whether or not your business should be collecting sales tax, you may call the State Tax Commission at 801-297-2200 or visit the office in person at 210 N 1950 W, SLC, UT.
If you will have employees, you are required to register with the following agencies:
State of Utah Department of Occupational and Professional License (DOPL)
If your profession is regulated and licensed by the State of Utah such as a contractor, cosmetologist, real estate, mortgage, doctor, etc., a copy of this license will need to be provided to the City when the business license application is submitted. The Department of Occupational and Professional License is located at 160 E 300 S, SLC, UT. The phone number is 801-530-6628 or you may visit www.dopl.utah.gov.
