Unemployment Insurance (UI)

New Employer Registration

If you pay compensation to individuals for their services, you may be liable for Unemployment Insurance (UI) taxes. If you are liable for taxes, this online application enables you to obtain an Employer Account Number to ensure that your quarterly UI tax reports and payments are credited promptly and accurately. For more detailed information regarding the New Hampshire Unemployment Compensation Program.

Note: You will not be allowed to register more than 30 days in advance of your first date of employment.

In order to complete this application you will need to have business information including but not limited to:
• The type of business entity and Federal Identification number.
• Information on owners, partners, officers, members including names, titles, addresses, social security numbers.
• Payroll information such as the first date of employment in New Hampshire, the date the first wages were paid in New Hampshire and the total quarterly gross payroll amounts in New Hampshire.
• The mailing address for the business
• The trade name or doing business name (DBA) and the physical address of business location in New Hampshire.
• Knowledge of principal business activities in New Hampshire.
• If the business was acquired from a previous owner, you will need information regarding the previous business owner (name, address, date the business was acquired, type of acquisition and New Hampshire UI Employer account number, if known).
After you have completed the online registration, we suggest you print a copy for your records. You will then be given a confirmation number. A Determination of Liability will then be mailed if applicable within 7-10 days with your state account number.
Once a New Hampshire UI account number has been assigned and your account has been found liable you can then perform other online functions such as Tax and Wage Reporting, Online Payments, View Tax Rates and File New Hire Reports.
