Deadline for delivery of surpluses from pawnbrokerage in the pawnbroking industry: extension

In the pawnbroking business, pawnbrokers may only accept a pawnbroker if, among other things, they have agreed with the pawnbroker that they are entitled to receive the part of the proceeds that is not due to the pawnbroker as satisfaction and has not been paid to the pawnbroker two years after the end of the year in which the pawnbroker was realised, to the competent authority.

If such an agreement has been concluded and the date to be determined thereafter has been reached, surpluses must be paid to the competent authority after one month at the latest, so that this part of the proceeds is forfeited. Upon application to the competent authority, this period may be extended for good cause.

The responsibility lies with the district, the independent city, the large independent city and the independent municipality.

This procedure can also be carried out 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.

  • If applicable, identity card or passport
  • If applicable, pawnbroking licence
  • If applicable, documents documenting the important reason

Deadlines may have to be observed. Please contact the competent authority.
