Permits and obligations

When you are setting up a company, find out carefully

  • what permits or licences you have to apply for
  • in which registers you have to enter your company
  • what notifications you have to submit and to whom. 

Take into consideration that

  • there are special obligations in some sectors
  • some notifications have to be submitted regularly
  • some permits and licences must be renewed after a certain period of time. 

Instead of several individual permits, you can sometimes apply for permits as a package of permits.
