To register a trade that does not require a license or a trade similar to a craft as a permanent trade, apply for entry in the register of owners of a trade that does not require a license or a trade that is similar to a craft.
If you submit the application in writing, you must enclose the documents to be submitted - depending on the Chamber of Crafts - as copies, certified copies or the originals.
A trade is a trade that does not require a license or a trade similar to a trade if it is carried out as a trade and is listed in Appendix B of the Trades and Crafts Code (see legal bases).
After notification of the craft-like trade, the Hamburg Chamber of Crafts will issue you with confirmation of entry in the register of owners of a business in a trade that does not require a license or a craft-like trade (commercial license). With the business card, you can later legitimize yourself as a registered business.
