Submitting an application through New York Business Express (NYBE) creates a profile for your business or organization. You will be able to reuse the information contained in your business profile to submit future applications when using NYBE. This will save you time from having to reenter common information about your business or organization, such as addresses, phone numbers and the people associated to your business or organization.
Once you have created a business profile for your business or organization, it will be associated to your NY.GOV login and only you will be able to submit applications for your business or organization. Others using NYBE who try to start an application with your business identifiers, such as the Legal Name or federal EIN, will be prevented from completing the application. If your business or organization is large we suggest identifying one individual to submit applications using NYBE.
If you are having trouble accessing the NY.GOV account you created your business profile under, click here to request your username or click here to reset your password.
If you are trying to complete an application for your business or organization and are prevented from completing the application because a business profile already exists, consult with those within your business or organization to check if they have started a profile using NYBE. If you have a third-party representative or accountant, you may want to check with them as well.
If you do not have access to the NY.GOV account with your business profile or do not know who within your organization created the business profile, you can request to have your business profile linked to a different NY.GOV account. If you are an owner or principal of the business or organization you can make the request by calling the NYBE Contact Center at (518)-485-5000, Monday - Friday 8:30 am - 4:30 pm, with the exception of state observed holidays. Once you have made a request, a representative from a New York State agency will contact you to verify your association to the business. Please note, a third-party representative or accountant cannot make a request to have a business profile linked to another NY.GOV account. This type of request must be made by an owner or principal of the business or organization.
