Utah Seller’s Permit, Wholesale License & Reseller License

Many people don’t realize that Utah is the fastest-growing state in the U.S., with increasing activity across a wide range of business sectors, including the IT, tourism, mining, and transportation industries. That means Utah could be a profitable destination for an aspiring businessperson, as all this booming economic activity shows few signs of slowing down. 

How can you set up a business in Utah? As you might expect, there’s no small amount of “red tape” that you must deal with before you can set out your business shingle in the Beehive State. For one thing, you will probably need to obtain a type of permit called a Utah sales tax license or sales tax number.

This is a kind of license that is issued by every state that levies a sales tax. Around the U.S., it goes by a number of other names: seller’s permit, wholesale license, sales tax permit, sales and use tax permit, resale license, reseller permit, and more. In each case, however, this permit always has the same basic function—it authorizes the business to collect sales tax on retail transactions.

Getting your Utah wholesale license is a simple procedure with FastFilings. Our convenient online order form takes literally just a couple of minutes to fill out. 

Do You Need a Seller’s Permit in Utah?

If your business sells tangible personal property—basically, anything you can feel, see, or touch—then you need a wholesale license in Utah if either of the following conditions applies:

  • You gross more than $100,000/year in the state
  • You engage in at least 200 distinct transactions in the state

Keep in mind that the definition of tangible property also includes gas, steam, water, electricity, and prewritten software. 

In addition, the requirement to obtain a reseller permit in Utah also applies to businesses that provide services involving the repair, cleaning, or renovation of tangible personal property. Marketplace facilitators fall under this requirement as well.

Seller’s Permit and Resale Certificate

Seller's Permit vs. Resale Certificate in UT

Although a seller’s permit has many names, it should not be confused with a resale certificate, which has a very different function. A resale certificate allows a business to purchase goods tax-free, with the expectation that these items will be resold later at retail. It is given by the buyer to the seller at the time of the initial tax-free transaction. 

A resale certificate in Utah is formally known as an exemption certificate. There are several different types of exemption certificates, the most commonly used being Form TC-721. 

Businesses that receive a Utah resale certificate are expected to retain it for at least three years.
