2017 Changes to Business and Sales Tax Licenses in Greeley

The City of Greeley has adopted a new ordinance for business licenses. Every company or individual conducting business in the City of Greeley must obtain a business license.

Currently Licensed Businesses

The business license will replace Greeley’s sales tax license. Any current sales tax licenses will be closed once the business license is obtained. On December 1, 2017, all sales tax licenses will be closed and no longer considered to be a valid license in the City of Greeley.

Unlicensed Businesses
Any unlicensed individual or company doing business in the City of Greeley must obtain a business license. This includes, but is not limited to, retail stores, restaurants, service-based companies, nonprofits, wholesalers, law firms, accounting firms, and manufacturers. 

This new ordinance was implemented to streamline the application process for businesses and the city. There is no fee to obtain a business license in Greeley.
