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, business consultants advise managers and business owners on a variety of issues including strategy, finance, efficiency, and policy. Even a consulting firm of one is a business. Many consultants operate out of their homes and make the mistake of assuming they can run their businesses license-free. However, most cities and states require business tax registration and licensing for all businesses, of all sizes – and some require Home Occupation Permits for home-based businesses.
