Where Do I Start?
Why Should I Get a License?
Most importantly, you should obtain a business license before conducting any business in Provo because a valid license is required by local and state law. States and municipalities require businesses to be licensed in order to protect the consumer, the community, and the business owner. The licensing process aims to help the business owner comply with local and state regulations, and to make sure the business is operating safely. For example, the fire department ensures safe conditions such as having enough emergency exits and fire extinguishers, and public works will inspect businesses to make sure contaminants aren't released into our public water.
