What is Trade License?

A Trade License or Business License is a license issued by the local government allowing a trader to operate a listed business within the jurisdiction of the local government. Municipal Corporation, Municipality, or Panchayat may be the Local Authority or Local Body.

Every employer and proprietor of a shop or establishment, regardless of whether it is a Sole Proprietorship, Partnership Firm, LLP, Private Limited Company, Public Limited Company, or any other business entity registered under any other law in force at the time, must apply for a Trade License. The purpose of the business license is to create a business-like environment in a commercial space, to separate residential and commercial spaces, and to restrict illegal business activities. It must be renewed and the trade license fee must be paid based on the total square footage of occupied space.

A business entity requires a license to legally engage in a variety of activities. It is a legal document that legitimizes a business and authorizes it to conduct certain activities in the area where the trade license was issued. This type of license is only valid for the activity for which it was issued. It does not grant permission to engage in activities other than those for which it was issued.
