Business re-registration

The relocation of a standing commercial enterprise within the territory of the competent authority as well as a change or expansion of the goods or services offered that are not customary for the registered business require a re-registration of the business.

Process flow

Among others, the tax office, chamber of crafts, chamber of industry and commerce, district court, employers' liability insurance associations and the trade supervisory office are informed about the business re-registration.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the municipality, the Samtgemeinde and the city.

This procedure can also be handled through a "point of single contact". The "Point of Single Contact" is a special service offered by the municipalities and the state for service providers.
