Business Deregistration

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

The same applies if you move 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 business or business at the previous location. Then log it back in to the new location.

If you change the legal form of your business, a business deregistration is also required. First of all, you must deregister your business under the previous legal form. You then re-register your business under the new legal form.

If you move your head office of your company or a branch or a dependent branch of your company to a new location without changing the responsibility within the municipality, a business re-registration is sufficient.

The deregistration of the following persons or their authorised representatives shall be carried out:

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

In the case of partnerships (e.B. OHG, KG, GbR/BGB-Gesellschaft, GmbH & Co. KG), business deregistrations must be made by all shareholders entitled to manage
