Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

If the operation of a craft or craft-like trade is no longer to be continued, you must apply to your Chamber of Crafts for deletion.

Companies in trades requiring a license, trades not requiring a license and trades similar to trades are compulsory members of their respective Chamber of Skilled Crafts, where they are entered either in the Register of Skilled Crafts or in the register of owners of a business in a trade not requiring a license or a trade similar to a trade. If you do not wish to continue your business or the registration requirements no longer apply, you must submit an application for deletion.
When the business is deleted from the Register of Craftsmen or the list of owners of a business in a craft that does not require a license or a trade similar to a craft, membership of the Chamber of Crafts also expires. If a craft business requiring a license is deleted from the Register of Craftsmen, the craft card must be returned to the Chamber of Crafts.
The following are entitled to apply:

  • Tradesman or tradeswoman or
  • Partners in the case of partnerships or
  • legal representative in the case of corporations (e.g. managing director of a GmbH)
  • in the event of death: Spouse or heir or heiress
