Home Occupations, Business Registrations & Renewals
In accordance with Chapter 10, Article II of the Code of Ordinances for the Village of Corrales, all persons who propose to engage in business within the municipal limits of the Village of Corrales shall apply for and pay a Business Registration fee for each outlet, branch, or location within the municipal limits prior to engaging in business unless otherwise exempted. Many businesses in the Village are based in residents’ homes. When that is the case, both a Home Occupation Permit and a Business Registration fee are required. If the business is located on a commercially zoned property, only the annual Business Registration fee is required. The following are the procedures for applying for the permits and registration.
Please note that a New Mexico Gross Receipts Tax Number (CRS #) is required before a Business Registration can be issued. That number can be obtained from the New Mexico Taxation and Revenue Department Office at 5301 Central Ave., NE in Albuquerque. Any questions concerning the CRS # should be directed to the Taxation and Revenue Department at 505-841-6200.
A Business Registration Application must be completed each and every year that you apply to do business in the Village. Information changes and the Village is trying to keep updated information on the database. Incomplete applications will be returned to the applicant. If you wish your business to be listed on the Village web site ensure that you submit the web site information page along with your Business Application.

If your business will be based out of your home you must receive approval from the Planning and Zoning Department. Once you have received approval for a Home Occupation Permit, you must next complete the 2017 NEW Business Registration Application and return it with your $35.00 Business Registration Fee (Chapter 10, Sec. 10-29 of the Code of Ordinances) to the Village Clerk’s Office. Failure to obtain a Business Registration within three (3) months of your Home Occupation approval will result in the revocation of the Home Occupation Permit. You will then have to re-file your Home Occupation application with a new payment of $35.00 (Chapter 18, Sec. 18-45 (c)(5)).
The Business Registration fee of $35.00 is an annual fee, which is assessed every year. Each year renewal invoices are mailed in February and the deadline for renewal is March 16. Failure to renew by the deadline will result in an additional $10.00 late fee.
