Licensing and Permits


Businesses Licenses
The San Carlos Apache Tribe supports economic growth through business relationships and small business developments. As a sovereign nation, the San Carlos Apache Tribe has their own Business License Process. Please see the policies below for more information. All applications must be turned into the Office of the General Manager for processing.
Policy: Prior to conducting or operating a business within the exterior boundary of the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation, all individuals or businesses that are not classified as Street Vendors, are required to obtain a Business License issued by the San Carlos Apache Tribe.
Policy: All Business licenses must be renewed prior to January 1st of each year. Failure to renew said license prior to January 1st will result in suspension of the privilege to conduct business on the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation until the license is renewed. NOTE: Notices will not be sent to vendors reminding them their business license will soon expire or has expired. It will be the responsibility of the vendor(s) to renew their business license for the new calendar year; the expiration date is clearly written on the issued business license certificate. If a Business will be receiving compensation from the San Carlos Apache Tribe they must also complete the San Carlos Apache Tribe Vendor Registration Form and submit a completed IRS W9 Form so payments issued can be accurately recorded. You can request for a Vendor Registration and W9 Form from the Business License Issuer if needed.
