The commencement of an independent operation of the standing trade or the operation of a branch or a dependent branch must be notified to the competent authority. This can be done either by the trader himself or by a managing director authorised to represent him.

A trade is

  • any permitted (i.e. not socially inferior), self-employed (i.e. in particular in one's own name and usually for one's own account) activity,
  • aimed at making a profit, and
  • is designed to be permanent.

Not included in the trade are, among others:

  • prohibited activities (socially unworthy and thus generally prohibited activities),
  • Primary production, for example agriculture and forestry,
  • liberal professions, for example doctors, lawyers, tax consultants, artists or
  • the mere management and use of one's own assets.
