How to Open a Business in Draper

Obtaining a business license is an important and fulfilling step in your journey to becoming a business owner. Our Business Licensing Division is here to help you along the way. Here are the steps to take to get started in Draper:

  1. Ensure you have registered your business with the state. The State of Utah has developed a One-Stop Online Business Registration website that streamlines the process of registering a new business. The site is available 24 hours a day. It will guide you through a series of questions designed to comply with federal and state government registration requirements.
  2. Check IRS online for Employer Identification Numbers (EIN) requirements. EIN's are issued for the purpose of tax administration. 
  3. Apply for a Draper City Business License
