Business Licensing

Welcome to Business Licensing!

If you are interested in establishing any type of business, promoting a special event, or soliciting door-to-door within Smithfield City limits, Business Licensing staff will assist you in obtaining a business license or special event license.

A license is required when engaging in or conducting business. This includes, but is not limited to, the sale of tangible personal property at retail or wholesale, the manufacturing of goods or property and the rendering of services to others. Any profession, vocation, craft, business, occupation, enterprise, and all other activities that are conducted for private profit or non-profit that are directly or indirectly conducted on any premise in the city or anywhere within its jurisdiction. This includes owning a rental dwelling or property.

A business license usually takes up to 2 weeks to process once the application is submitted. Some licenses such as solicitor’s licenses, can be issued over the counter when a background check is included in the application at the time of submission.
