Consumer Credit Notification
Anyone engaging in activities subject to the Utah Consumer Credit Code must file the Consumer Credit Notification, or CCN, with this Department. The CCN form is used for both your initial notification and subsequent renewals. In general, only one DBA is permitted on each CCN form.
If you are subject to the Utah Consumer Credit Code, click the following link to download and complete the CCN form. Instructions for filling out and submitting the CCN are found on the form itself and in the FAQs linked below.
Consumer Credit Notification Form Tips
- The CCN form was last revised in September of 2020. We will not accept older versions of the CCN form.
- The CCN is an Adobe Acrobat form that needs to be filled out in Adobe Acrobat Reader, not your browser’s PDF viewer.
- You must register your business name with the Utah Department of Commerce before you can file a CCN.
- Before you fill out the CCN form, please read the “INSTRUCTIONS” in the CCN’s top left corner and the FAQs (see links above).
- To renew your notification, submit an updated CCN between November 1st and January 31st every year. If not renewed, a CCN expires on January 31st.
