A trade license is a document/certificate issued by the Municipal Corporation of respective state government which provides the permission to the individual (person seeking to open a business) to start explicit/a specific/a selected trade or business in a very particular area/location. However, the license doesn’t permit the holder to the other trade or business than for it is issued. moreover, this license doesn’t die any reasonably property possession to the holder of the license.

    I would like to discuss:

    Process Involved:

    Renewal of the Trade License:

    The validity of a license issued by the municipal authority is for a period of one year and required to be renewed every year in between 1st January to 31st March.

    Within 30 days from the date of expiry of the license, the application needs to be made for the renewal. In case of any delay in the renewal process of the license, then the respective authority might take an action against the person by imposing fine depending upon the rules and regulation.

    Following are the documents that needs to be submitted for renewal of the license–

    1. Original copy of the trade License;
    2. Previous year challans;
    3. Up to date property tax paid receipt.

    Some points on which you need to give some attention:

    • As the issuance of license is a matter of Municipal Authorities of states, therefore the applicable  rules and regulations varies from state to state, consequently the fee structure varies
    • Without applying for a valid license if a person starts doing business, then the government would possibly take an action against the person by imposing fines and penalties as per the rules and regulations. 
    • The applicable rules and regulations needs to be complied with reasonable care otherwise the consequences of non-compliance would lead to the closure of business
