Business License Application

 

General Information: The City of Holladay requires that a valid business license be held by anyone conducting business in Holladay. “Business” means and includes every craft, trade, occupation, profession or activity pursued for gain or profit. Non-profit, charitable, governmental and insurance agencies are also required to obtain a business license although they may be exempt from license fees. State professional licenses are required in addition to a business license from your municipality for certain businesses such as massage therapy, beauticians, contractors, etc. 

Each business location will need a separate license.

Temporary Businesses, Special Events and Solicitor are also required to obtain licenses and permits. Solicitors and door-to-door sales persons, who may already be licensed in another city, are required to obtain a Solicitors License through Holladay.

Licenses are not transferable from address to address, nor from owner to owner. Any change of location, ownership or corporate information requires a new application to be submitted. Minor changes such as mailing address can be called into the city office.
