Update of our information on the application for a business permit

Barring a few exceptions you must apply for a business permit if you wish to carry out a commercial or craft activity, or certain liberal professions, either as a self-employed person or in the form of a company.

You can make this application if you are:

  • the owner of the business (if the activity is carried out in their own name); or
  • the legal representative of the company registered with the Trade and Companies Register (if the business has the legal form of a company).

We strongly recommend that you submit your application for a business permit online via, from a business eSpace and using a LuxTrust product. This way, depending on the information you have entered, the system will determine which documents you need to enclose with your application.

For full details on how to apply for a business permit, see our updated information page.
