List of non-licensed and craft-like trades: registration

If you wish to register a craft trade or craft-like trade, the competent authority does not enter you in the craft role, but in the "directory of holders of a business of a craft or craft-like trade". The issuance of a trade card is connected with the entry in the "Register of holders of a business of a craft or craft-like trade". With the business card, you can later legitimize yourself as a registered business.

Identity card or passport with registration confirmation if necessary, residence certificate Shareholder agreement If necessary, further documents in accordance with Section 20 i. V.m. Section 17 paragraph 1 Crafts Code (HwO) In order to be included in the 'Register of holders of a establishment of a craft or craft-like craft trade', you do not need a certificate of qualification, unlike a craft person subject to registration in the craft role.
