Doing Business in Tontitown

Business License Applications

All businesses in Tontitown must obtain a Business License unless your business qualifies for an exemption. To find out if your business must obtain a license, please refer to this link at American Legal Publishing regarding our ordinances: DO I QUALIFY?

Different business application forms are available for the three following business types:

1) Firework Stand

2) Outdoor Food Vendors

3) Home Occupations

Business have two ways to apply:

1) A business can submit its application online; after the application is reviewed and approved, the applicant may make payment in person, by phone with credit card payment, or check via mail.

2) A business can print a paper application as found below. Applicant must complete all sections on the application. After the application is reviewed, the applicant may pay by mail or in person. NOTE: If your business is moving or has moved, into an existing building, you are required to fill out a Change of Occupancy form first.  Your site must be inspected by both the Building Inspector and the Code Enforcement Officer before a business license can be issued; a fee is charged and includes the cost of inspections. Once approved, you will receive a Certificate of Occupancy and then your business license can be issued for an additional fee. All new businesses will need to meet certain requirements in order to have an approved inspection from The Code Enforcement Officer.



The fees for business licenses are found by clicking here: FEES – American Legal Publishing.

Existing business in the City of Tontitown will need to renew their business license between June 1 – June 30 of each year. The city will mail an invoice for renewal each year.

Penalties will apply if renewals are not paid before June 30. An additional late fee totaling the amount of the business license will be added to your license fee if payment is not received by the expiration date.
