Registering and deregistering a business

Do you want to set up a business, wind up the business or change the location of your premises? Then you normally have to register or deregister your business.

Note: Some commercial activities are subject to a license or inspection. Inform yourself in good time which personal, financial and professional requirements you have to fulfil in order to operate in this industrial sector. A checklist regarding the formalities involved in setting up a business is available on the NewCome pages.

The "Starter Center" of the Chamber of Crafts and Trade Baden-Württemberg Starter-Center der Handwerkskammern Baden-Württemberg offers you the option of stating your personal and company data only once, and then to use it for all formalities which are required when setting up a crafts business.
