What We Do
The Business Registration Section of the Planning Department is responsible for carrying out the duties described in the Business Registration Ordinance for the City of Albuquerque. The ordinance requires that all businesses apply for and pay a business registration fee for each outlet, branch, location, or place of business within the municipal limits of the city prior to engaging in business.
