Extract from the commercial register; application for comparable proof by EU citizens
Some administrative procedures require the provision of an extract from the commercial register. EU foreigners may be required to provide comparable proof from their home country.
In order to exercise a trade requiring a permit or supervision, EU foreigners may be required to provide proof comparable to the German Gewerbezentralregisterauszug. If you are resident abroad, you will need a document from your home country proving that you have the personal reliability to carry out the desired trade (e.g. an official extract from the trade register or an equivalent document). This proof must be applied for at the competent authority in your home country.
If, as an EU foreigner, you require a German extract from the central trade register in order to carry on a trade that requires a permit or supervision, you can apply for this from the local municipality responsible for you.
