Trade: Registration, conversion or deregistration of a trade / Bremerhaven Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

A business registration is always required when an independent operation of a standing trade, a branch office or a dependent branch office is started.

The business registration is required in order to be allowed to operate a trade. In addition, registration in the register of skilled crafts may be necessary, which must be applied for at the Chamber of Skilled Crafts.

A trade re-registration with the competent trade registration office is always necessary if an independent registered business of a standing trade, a branch office or a dependent branch office either changes the location of the business (new address within a registration district) or the subject of the trade is changed or extended to goods or services that are not customary in trades of the registered type.

The trade re-registration complies with the obligation to notify the transfer of the registered office or the change of the subject matter of a trade from the point of view of trade law.

A trade deregistration is always required if the independent operation of a standing trade, a branch office or a dependent branch office is discontinued. This also applies if the trade is moved to another registration district.
