The City of Tempe requires certain businesses and individuals to obtain a special regulatory license or permit prior to operating. Some of these businesses also require a Privilege Tax License.

Due to the fact that some types of licensing require background checks, it is imperative to allow enough lead time for processing your application prior to opening your business.

All persons applying for business license as an Individual, Sole Proprietor or Husband & Wife business, must provide evidence of their legal right to be in the United States in compliance with A.R.S. 41-1080, also known as the “Legal Arizona Workers Act".
