No, this is an optional field. If you are a business entity formed in New Jersey and have valid alternate name(s) registered, you will be able to select one Trade Name for display on the Business Registration Certificate.
For New Jersey Partnerships or Proprietorships as well as non-New Jersey Business Entities, you can enter one Primary and up to nine Additional Trade Names. If Primary Trade Name is entered, it will be displayed on the Business Registration Certificate.
Entity ID which is also known as a Corporate Business ID is a 10-digit number assigned by New Jersey Division of Revenue and Enterprise Services upon Business Formation filing. It is required to register a business in New Jersey unless you are registering a Partnership or Proprietorship or a non-New Jersey business entity who either has employees residing in New Jersey or requires Business Registration Certificate for applying for New Jersey State Contract.
If you haven’t filed for Business Formation in New Jersey but need Entity ID, you can obtain Entity ID from here.
New Jersey has defined 4-digit numbers to identify the product group or service of your business. The complete list is available here.
When you start entering a keyword or 4-digit code in the field, it will start displaying options that match. You will need to select one of the displayed options for selecting a valid code.
You can find more information on NACIS codes here, which provides a search box on the left side of the page. Search can be performed on either a keyword or NAICS code.
You can also start entering keywords or 6-digit code in NAICS field on the Registration form itself and it will start displaying options that match. You will be able to select one of the displayed options.
After you have successfully completed the registration application you will be presented with a confirmation page that provides link(s) to download your document(s). While everyone gets the copy of Business Registration Document, the Sales Tax Certificate of Authority is available to only those eligible based on application submitted.
You will need to download the Sales Tax Certificate of Authority and the Business Registration document electronically as they will not be sent to you by mail.
Business Registration Certificate is, however, mailed in 10 business days. You can download your Business Registration Certificate in 2 business days after registration filing from here .
