Business Licensing (Sales Tax)

The City of Arvada requires all businesses located within the City limits to obtain a business license. Zoning must approve all in-City businesses and the Building Department must approve all in-City commercial businesses. 

Businesses can apply for a business license on-line, in person or via a hard copy application. Licenses are generally processed within 10 business days. 

Arvada is a home-ruled City which means we collect our own tax. The City tax rate is 3.46% for sales and use tax.

City of Arvada business licenses currently do not expire and there is no cost to apply. Contact the Revenue Division at 720-898-7100 with questions or for additional information.
