Business Registration Certificate

A Business Registration Certificate serves two purposes:

  • For public contracting, as proof of valid business registration with the New Jersey Division of Revenue. All contractors and subcontractors must provide this documentation when seeking to do business with the State of New Jersey, and other public agencies in this state. Proof of registration is also required for licensure with the Casino Control Commission.

  • To comply with Chapter 85, P.L. 2006, defined under N.J.S.A. 54A:7-1.2. You must use the Business Registration Certificate if you are an unincorporated construction contractor performing work in NJ or you are a registered unincorporated contractor requesting proof of certification.

If you are a registered vendor but have not received the Business Registration Certificate in the mail, you may obtain a certificate online. Please note that this certificate is not required by all businesses in New Jersey, but only those doing business with the public sector and with the casino service industry.

You may check the online registration inquiry to determine if the business is already registered.If you have not registered but are required to have this certificate, you will need to complete Form NJ-REG. Representatives of the Division's Client Registration activity are available to assist in the registration process by calling 609.292.9292.
