ADDITIONAL BUSINESS IFORMATION

Who must 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. Businesses are also required to obtain a business license from the city or county in which they are located.

Why are businesses required to register?
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.

Where do you register your business name?
You can register your business by contacting:

Utah Division of Corporations and Commercial Code
160 East 300 South, 2nd Floor
Salt Lake City, UT 84145-0801
(801) 530-4849

You can register your business either in person or by mail. There is a $20.00 filing fee for a renewable three-year registration for a DBA. Businesses that incorporate, form a limited liability company or limited partnership must file incorporating or organizing articles with a filing fee of $50.00.
