    Trade License Registration

    A trade license is a document/ certificate that gives the permission to the applicant who seeks to open a business, to commence a particular trade or business in a particular area/ location. However, the license does not allow the holder to any other trade or business than for it is issued. Furthermore, this license does not pass on any kind of property ownership to the holder of the license. A Trade License is issued by the State Government to regulate specific business from a particular locality. This helps in ensuring that no one is severally affected by nuisance and health hazard of any trade or business. The major objective of the trade license is to reduce the people from making their residential area as their business location to maintain the business environment and locality environment.  Any unauthorised running of trade is an offence which may result in a substantial penalty and subsequent prosecution. License once issued requires periodical renewal on annual basis. Application for renewal must be filed at least 30 days before expiry of license.


    ComplianceIndia can help you obtain your Trade License Registration quickly and hassle-free.
