REMINDER: Retail Business Registration Program Deadline January 31

The City of New Rochelle’s Retail Business Registration Program requires all retail businesses to register with the City and renew their registration annually. The deadline for registration is January 31, 2017. All non-retail businesses in New Rochelle are also encouraged to register. Businesses can renew/ register online in English or Spanish at using a valid e-mail.

Registered businesses will become part of the City’s business directory, and will receive emergency alerts as well as notification of business-related events and opportunities.

“In 2016, registered businesses have attended free business education sessions, participated in promotional events like our first city-wide FoodFest Restaurant Week and the Holiday Shopping Guide, and received valuable communications about business resources available to help grow their businesses,” noted Business Ambassador Lisa Davis.

Businesses are reminded that this year’s registration deadline is January 31, 2017. There is NO FEE to register; however, failure to register / renew on time could result in a penalty of $50 per month, up to a maximum of $350. Once registration is complete you will be issued a Retail Business Registration Certificate for display in your business.

A retail business is defined as any for-profit commercial operation or occupation, of any kind, including, without limitation, any sole proprietorship, partnership, limited partnership, joint venture, association, corporation, limited liability company, franchisee, cooperative, or any other entity recognized by law that owns, leases, or occupies any premises in the City, and is engaged in the sale of goods or services that are subject to New York state sales tax.  The registration requirement includes the retail store component of any not-for-profit entity.

Additional information is available on the City’s website at or by contacting Lisa Davis at 914.654.2189 or  As Business Ambassador, Lisa encourages your questions and ideas about helping businesses be more successful in New Rochelle.
