Utah is a land of peaks and valleys -- a place with tremendous natural beauty and a thriving business community. That may be in part due to its relatively simple, straightforward licensing processes. Businesses face little hassle to get up and running legally.
In Utah, retail businesses of all sorts including toy stores, clothing shops, photography businesses and general merchandisers need licenses and permits. In most cases, retail businesses take relatively few licenses – however being registered for all state and local taxes is important as is having any needed general business licenses.
