Home Based Regulations

Home OfficeThe City of Golden supports and encourages home based businesses in the community. The City recognizes that for many residents the most beneficial way to operate a start-up or new business is from your own residence. This trend also supports our sustainability goals by facilitating business in additional locations and reducing commuting time and vehicle miles traveled.

Guidelines for Operating a Home Based Business

Golden’s codes permit and encourage home based businesses when the operation of the business is secondary and incidental to the residential use of the structure. Take a minute to read the zoning regulations for home based businesses in Chapter 18.42 of the Municipal Code (Home Occupations).

Your home based business is also required to follow the registration and licensing requirements for all businesses in the community. Please visit Sales & Use Tax License to access these regulations.
