Business Licensing

A Business License is the city's permission to operate a legal business within the boundaries of Ogden city. Ordinance 5-1A-1 the term "business" includes every trade, occupation, profession or activity engaged in within the city with the object of gain or economic profit.


The business license department is responsible for issuing business licenses to all persons who conduct business in Ogden. Our regulations are found in Section 5 of the Municipal Code.


A general business license may require approvals from a variety of agencies such as the Weber-Morgan Health Department, Utah Department of Agriculture, and the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing.
