Auctioneer business permit application

Service Description

If you wish to auction off movable property, land or rights belonging to third parties on a commercial basis, you require permission from the competent authority. The permit may be subject to conditions if this is necessary for the protection of the general public, the clients or the bidders.

In the case of partnerships (e.g. OHG, KG), each managing partner is a trader. In the case of legal entities (e.g. GmbH, AG), permission is granted to the legal entity.

As an auctioneer you may not:

  • bid at your auctions yourself or through another person for yourself or buy auction goods entrusted to you,
  • allow relatives or your employees to bid at your auctions or to purchase auction goods entrusted to you,
  • bid for another person at your auctions or purchase auction goods entrusted to you, unless you have a written bid from the other person,
  • auction movable property from among the goods you carry in your commercial business, unless it is customary to do so,
  • sell goods at auction,
    • you have a lien on, or
    • if they belong to the goods that you offer in open sales outlets and which are unused or whose intended use consists in their consumption (consumer goods).
