The City requires a business registration ($35) for companies located in the City.  Companies located outside the city limits but doing business in Santa Fe are required to have a business license ($10).

First steps include obtaining a CRS number with NM Taxation and Revenue (if you don’t already have one). To start a business in the City of Santa Fe, first contact the Inspection and Enforcement department to schedule an inspection of the site where your business will be (or is) located, (505) 955-6646. After your business has been approved for zoning, it must then be inspected by the Fire Department for safety. After inspections are completed, download and complete the Business License Application and submit it to the Accounts Payable department, 200 Lincoln Ave (City Hall), room 112 along with the appropriate fee:
