The Novi City Council took another step toward streamlining doing business in Novi with the approval to repeal the requirement for Business Registration. Significant in this economic climate, the City of Novi is giving up revenue to be a better business partner and host to the more than 2,100 businesses in the community.
What does this mean for Novi businesses?
Businesses will no longer need to complete a Business Registration nor pay the annual registration fee.
Why the change?
Over the past several years, Novi has made great strides in amending ordinances and changing policy to enhance customer service to our business community. Repealing the Business Registration requirement will save Novi businesses time and money. Business Registrations were initially instituted for the purpose of obtaining emergency business contact information. Novi will still continue to internally maintain this information through our Police and Fire Departments.
When will this amendment take effect?
There will be no Businesses Registration requirement beginning in 2010.
