CT Contractor Working In NYC

I have a client that runs some highend stores, we have done all there work in these stores in CT for the last 5 years.
He now wants me to take care of some stores in NYC

I carry a CT HIC (home improvement contractor) license, $1mil liability insurance and workers comp for my guys.

Do any of you guys do business in both CT and NY, if so can you tell me what is involved, do I need to get licensed for NY or just get a cert to do business in NY?

Thanks Guys

Re: CT Contractor Working In NYC

Technically , if it's commercial work , a home improvement license Isn't necessary , so testing wouldnt be involved . However , you do need to Carry workmans comp , disability , and a GL policy . You then can apply for a Non registered general contractors license , which allows you to obtain a DOB tracking number to pull alteration permits, Unless your building something from the ground up , chances are you don't need to be a registered general contractor . Tracking number will be able to pull most common permits .

GL , disability , and workmans comp = DOB tracking number .

You can emails these certificates to the DOB directly and they can issue you a tracking number over email .

Thanks Plazman, I though there might be a simple answer, we are basically doing maintenance work, painting a wall, changing out bulbs, putting up art work. Its all basically silly stuff, but pays the bill
