Holding a license or a registration certificate might be a condition to the commencement and lawful carrying out of your planned business operation. That is why in certain situations the registration in the Commercial Register (Registration of Companies) may not be enough by itself for the commencement and conduction of the business activity as initially planned – companies should also consider the possible need of going through an additional licensing or registration procedure. You can prepare and submit the documents needed for the purposes of the respective procedure either personally or through engaging the services of a lawyer.

Permits are issued for carrying out particular transactions or actions.
