Welcome to the City of New Rochelle's Business Registration System. This system allows you to register your business in the fastest way possible. When you are finished, your submission will be reviewed, and if complete, you will receive a certificate from the City.

Business Registration is required for retail businesses and student housing businesses. All other businesses in New Rochelle are encouraged to register.

Business Registration:The purpose of the 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. Through the information gathered by this registration program and the outreach by the Department of Development’s new Business Ambassador, the City will strive to enhance a business friendly environment. See Retail Business registration ordinance

To quickly navigate the registration system please have the following information available:

  • Business EIN Number
  • Proof of authorization to do business in NYS
  • Proof of Current Liability Insurance
  • North American Classification system Code
  • Landlord Information

Student Housing Business Registration:All owners of properties housing three (3) or more students within New Rochelle are required to register on the City’s Student Housing Business Registration website. This will allow the City to create a comprehensive student housing directory that protects the safety of students from overcrowding situations and mitigate any negative impact of student housing on surrounding neighborhoods. See Student Housing registration ordinance

FOR THE PURPOSE OF THIS REGISTRATION, “BUSINESS” REFERS TO THE STUDENT HOUSING LOCATION. Each location (identified by street address) requires its own registration.

As you enter your business information into the system your entries will be auto saved so that you can return to complete the registration later. The registration process takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.
