Trade License Registration

Registration for a Business License

A trade licence is a document or certificate that permits an applicant to start a certain trade or company in a given area or place. The trade licence holder is prohibited from using it for any other work or business. To begin doing business in a certain region or location, a state, corporation, or municipality will need to get a trade licence from the concerned central or state government. To acquire registration, the applicant must first be aware of the jurisdiction in which the company is conducted and the appropriate Act.

The application for trade registration must be submitted within 30 days after beginning a business. Upon submission of the application, a trade licence is generally given within 7-15 days. In most states, the application for granting or renewing a licence will be made to the commissioner of the company.
