      Overview of Trade License or Registration

      To start a business in India, you need a trade license. A trade license is a document that allows you to start a business in a specific trade in a specific area. An entrepreneur is assured of starting a business if the appropriate state government issues a trade license. In addition to not granting property ownership, a trade license does not allow the applicant to trade in only one particular business. Municipal Corporation regulates trade license acts by the State Government and issued after consulting with departments such as health, fire, engineering, etc. An enterprise that obtains a trade license must follow the rules, regulations, and guidelines. A Trade License ensures that an enterprise or business is not engaging in unethical practices or using hazardous materials that may harm those living within a defined area. By issuing it, the government can regulate trade activities across the country.
