Retail Business Registration Program


The purpose of the Retail Business Registration Program is to foster the growth of local businesses, attract new businesses to the City, and to protect the health, safety and welfare of the individual and business citizens of the City of New Rochelle. Please read the Frequently Asked Questions for more information.

All retail businesses are required to enter the program and all other businesses are encouraged to register. There is no fee to register; however, failure to register by the deadline will result in a penalty of $50 per month, up to a maximum of $350. Registration is annual and in subsequent years must be completed during the month of January.  New businesses must register within one month of opening.
