Craftsman's role Registration of a handcrafted ancillary enterprise

A secondary craft enterprise exists when, in conjunction with a company which is superior to a company which is superior to the main undertaking, craftsmanship is provided to third parties to a not insignificant extent. There is an obligation to register in the craft role for handicraft ancillary enterprises, which

  • with a supply or other commercial business of public law institutions,
  • with an undertaking in a craft sector subject to authorisation, industry, commerce, agriculture or other economic and professional sectors

goods or services for third parties (not for the main establishment) are manufactured or provided in a craft sector subject to authorisation. Auxiliary enterprises in accordance with Section 3 of the German Crafts Code (HwO) are not subject to registration.
