Facts about our Service

FAQ Business deregistration

Who must deregister their Business in Germany?

Trade deregistration is always necessary if you give up an independent trade with a fixed place of Business (in the so-called “standing trade”). 

Such cases include:

  • You wish to terminate altogether or discontinue your trade operation.
  • You move the head office of your Business or a branch or dependent branch of your Business to a new location outside the municipality. In this case, you must deregister your trade with the regulatory office responsible for you. Then re-register the Business with the trade authority at the new location in the new municipality.
  • You are changing the legal form of your trade. Deregister your Business under the previous legal form. Then re-register your trade under the new legal form.
Why should I deregister my German business?

According to § 14 Gewerbeordnung (GewO), every business owner is obliged to notify all changes concerning their trade. You must deregister your trade at the same time as you end your business activities, move to another community, or change the legal form of your trade.

The Trade Licensing Office notifies the tax office, the Chamber of Industry and Commerce, the Chamber of Crafts, if applicable, the registry court, and the responsible employers’ liability insurance association you have deregistered your trade. For this reason, trade deregistration must also take place when the trade is discontinued.

What should I do if I forget to deregister my German Business?

It is possible to deregister or re-registered retroactively. If the deregistration is made retroactively, you should know that you may have no longer exercised the trade as of the specified date. Authorities do not track the day when a trade has been deregistered. Nevertheless, all traders should observe a certain limit. In general, anyone who deregisters their business more than three months late can risk a fine.
