Primary-Sector Certification

As a first step to acquiring certain tax incentives, a company must be certified as a primary-sector business by the ND Department of Commerce.

"Primary sector business" means an individual, corporation, limited liability company, partnership, or association which through the employment of knowledge or labor adds value to a product, process, or service that results in the creation of new wealth. The term includes tourism but does not include production agriculture.
