List of non-licensed and craft-like trades: Registration
If you wish to register a craft or a craft-like trade without a licence, the competent authority does not enter you in the register of craftsmen, but in the "List of the owners of a business of a craft or a craft-like trade without a licence".
The entry in the "Register of the owners of a business of a craft or a craft-like trade without authorisation" is associated with the issuance of a trade card . With the business card, you can later legitimize yourself as a registered business enterprise.
- Identity card or passport with confirmation of registration
- If applicable, residence certificate
- Shareholders' Agreement
- if applicable, further documents in accordance with § 20 i. V.m. § 17 paragraph 1 Handwerksordnung (HwO)
In order to be included in the "Register of the owners of a business of a craft or a craft-like trade without a licence", you do not need proof of qualification - unlike in the case of a craft subject to registration in the register of craftsmen.
