If you wish to cease the operation of your business, you are obliged to deregister your business.

The same applies if you relocate the headquarters of your company or a branch or a dependent branch of your company to a new location and this results in the responsibility of a different municipality. First, deregister your trade or business at the previous location. Then you log it back in to the new location.

If you change the legal form of your business, you will also need to deregister your business. First of all, you have to deregister your business under the previous legal form. You then re-register your business under the new legal form.

If you relocate your headquarters of your company or a branch or a dependent branch of your company to a new location without any change in the responsibility within the municipality, a business re-registration is sufficient.

The deregistration must be carried out by the following persons or their authorised representatives:

  • in the case of individual trades, by the trader himself,
  • in the case of corporations (e.g. GmbH, AG) by the legal representative(s).
