Anyone operating or conducting business in the City of Farmington must obtain a City Business License. The main categories of business licenses are "General/Commercial", "Home Business", and "Requested Home Business." Home business defined as preschools, day cares or any other home business that require an annual inspection and Requested Home Business defined as any home business owner requesting a certificate of license.
The General/Commercial Business License is for any business operating in a commercial area. The Home Preschool/Daycare Occupation License is designed for those day cares and preschools being operated from the home. All other Home Businesses are no longer required to have a License. However, a Requested Home Business License Certificate is available, if needed.
The business license fees for the General/Commercial License are $125 per year for Small Commercial (under 10,000 sq. ft. including outdoor sales area), $200 per year for Medium Commercial (10,000 to 40,000 sq. ft. including outdoor sales area) $300 per year for Large Commercial (over 40,000 sq. ft. including outdoor sales area) and the license is renewable every January. The fee for Home Preschool/Daycare Occupation License is $75 per year and the license is renewable every January. Beginning July 1st of each year the fee for the Home Preschool/Daycare Occupation license is reduced 50% to $37.50 and the Small, Medium, and Large Commercial Licenses are also reduced 50% to $62.50, $100.00, $150.00 respectively.
