More than 500 Businesses Already Registered

in New Goodyear Business Program

(GOODYEAR, AZ)  As of Jan. 1, 2007, all those engaged in business (including home businesses) within the City of Goodyear are required to apply for a Business Registration Permit and to renew it annually. More than 500 Goodyear businesses have already registered with the City.


This registration is a permit and not a business license as is required in most Valley cities.


“Our focus is not to regulate business or enhance revenues by charging the usual fee, but rather to gather information which will be helpful to various City departments such as Economic Development, Fire, and Police,” states Business Registration Technician Tina Daniels.


The business registration permit requirement applies to all businesses regularly providing goods or services within Goodyear's City limits except schools, churches, athletic groups, and nonprofit organizations. Park & swap operations, peddlers, or special events must obtain a temporary use permit from the City instead of a business registration permit.


The City will NEVER sell the information and will protect its privacy according to state law. The law allows information about a business (except for social security number and Tax ID number) to be obtained through a Public Records Request to the municipality.


If you are a Goodyear business owner and already received a Business Registration Application from the City of Goodyear, you have 30 days to register or you could be subject to a $250 fine.


If you own a business in Goodyear (including a home business), but have not received a Business Registration Application in the mail from the City, please take time to go online and complete the Business Registration Application  -- ( and click on Applications and Permits on homepage menu) and e-mail it as to


Once a business owner receives a Business Registration Permit from Goodyear, the City asks that it be displayed it in a prominent place within the establishment and renewed every year.  Renewal applications will be available on-line at Goodyear’s website at the end of 2007.
