There are numerous forms and filings required of a new business, depending on the structure you select, the nature of your business and any regulations which your industry may impose. Your first task when starting a new business should be to discuss your plans with an accountant and an attorney. These professionals can help you navigate the numerous choices you will face and will guide you to the resources you may utilize to achieve your goals. Basically, you need to address the following:

  • Form of Business
  • Registration with Federal and State organizations
  • Insurance
  • Record-keeping
  • Employees
  • Taxation

The Borough of New Providence does not require any licensing or registration per se, but depending on your location and activities, you may be subject to certain Borough rules and regulations.
