Business Registration Renewals

New for 2023

The City of Alamogordo is in the process of converting to a new business registration program and will take a few months to complete the process. Therefore, the $35 business registration fee due by January 31, 2023, will be waived, and your business registration will be automatically extended. However, a new business registration certificate will not be issued. If the State requires you to have a business registration certificate, we can issue a temporary certificate upon request. 

Per our ordinance amendment of Chapter 17, all business registration renewals will no longer have a due date of January 31st of each year, the renewal dates will be staggered. Therefore, once the program conversion is in operation, you will receive an email with your new business renewal date. Please assist us in getting this notification to you by emailing us, calling us, or stopping by with your current email address and including your business name and business location.
