Unless shops have changed their type of business, organization or business address, the deadline to submit the renewal is September 30, 2016.
The renewal form/process language can be very confusing, and because of this, AASP/NJ has compiled a members-only “plain language assistance” guide. This guide provides members with step-by-step instructions, covering everything from the application process to payment options.
According to Bryant, “My phones are ringing off the hook with questions from our members about the renewal process. The guide AASP/NJ has created for its members is vital to showing shops exactly what they can and cannot do, step by step. In this industry, forms are just thrown at shops without any sort of explanation. Shop owners may fill out the wrong forms, or even answer questions that do not pertain to them. That’s where we come in. As a shop owner, you really do benefit from being a member of the AASP/NJ,” said Bryant.
