The City of Grantsville requires that a valid business license be held by anyone conducting business in Grantsville. “Business” means and includes every craft, trade, occupation, profession, or activity pursued for gain or profit. Non-profit, charitable, governmental, and insurance agencies are also required to obtain a business license although they may be exempt from license fees. State business licenses are required for certain businesses such as massage therapy, beauticians, contractors, etc. You can contact the Utah Department of Professional Licensing to see if your profession requires a state license.
Licenses are NOT transferable from address to address, nor from owner to owner. Any change of location or ownership requires a new application to be submitted. Minor changes such as mailing address can be called into the city office.
In order to avoid late fees, licenses MUST be renewed prior to expiration of license. The licensee is responsible for renewal. The license renewal fee will double after expiration of license. Grantsville City requires notice if the business has moved out of the City or is no longer conducting business.

- Business name & DBA name
