- Takeover of an existing business, e.g. by purchase or lease,
- conversion of a sole proprietorship into another legal form,
- transfer of a business from the area of one authority to the area of another authority (considered as an abandonment by one authority and as a new establishment by the other authority).
The business registration must be carried out simultaneously with the start of the business.

Excluded are, among others:

- Liberal professions (including lawyers, notaries, tax consultants, auditors, doctors, scientific, artistic and literary activities)
