Business Registration

A trade is any non-socially unsocial, independent, permanent and profit-generating activity carried out in its own name and on its own account.

The trades do not include:

  • socially unworthy activities, e.g. clairvoyant,
  • primary production, e.g. agriculture and forestry,
  • professions, e.g. doctors, lawyers, tax consultants,
  • the management of own assets (unless it is a company registered in the commercial register).

The commencement of an independent operation of the standing trade or the operation of a branch or a dependent branch must be notified to the competent authority at the same time as the beginning.

Businesses that are operated by:

  • Sole traders (natural persons)
  • Partnerships (each partner authorized to represent a partnership is obliged to notify)
  • in the case of legal entities, the legal entity itself (GmbH, AG)
