A TRADE NAME is the name or signature whereby a collective, limited partnership or public limited trading company is made known.

To find out whether the trade name that you want to register already appears in the Business Register or not. It is important to bear in mind the practical tips* suggested by the Central Business Register prior to making the inquiry.

Registration in the Business Register
