Help for Newark Business Owners with Online License Applications/Renewals

IBID teams with City of Newark, Department of Economic & Housing Development and Newark Community Economic Development Corporation to provide assistance. 

Newark business owners are reminded that all license applications and renewals in the city must be completed online. The Ironbound Business Improvement District (IBID) is partnering with the City of Newark, Department of Economic & Housing Development and the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation (NCEDC) to provide assistance completing the online process by hosting information sessions.

“The Ironbound District is Newark’s, and one of New Jersey’s, leading dining destinations with more than 200 restaurants, cafes and specialty food shops,” noted Seth A. Grossman, the IBID’s Executive Director. “With restaurant license renewals due by January 31, we thought it was important to remind business owners about the change to the online filing process and to provide support with completing the online application process.”

 

“The business community in our City is expanding and diversifying in areas of service, outreach and capacity,” added Mayor Ras J. Baraka. “We are attracting entrepreneurs who are expanding our technology profile as well as small businesses that cater to the niche interests of our citizens. The City of Newark wants to ensure that all business owners are able to seamlessly handle the renewal process for the efficient management of their interests.”

Business owners must log on to www.newarknj.gov/business-licenses to complete their license applications and renewals. A complete list of all business licenses and their renewal deadlines throughout the year, can also be found on the site. The City of Newark also offers an online license hotline to provide additional information (973.877.9415).

The IBID will be hosting information sessions for Ironbound District business owners on Tuesdays and Thursdays at its office (56 Congress Street), with expert assistance in completing applications provided by NCEDC representatives.
