Closing a sole proprietorship

There are certain obligations associated with the dissolution of a business. The tax office must be notified, the licence to trade must be returned or its suspension reported, the business must be removed from the companies register, the social insurance institution must be notified and the registration of any employees must be cancelled.


These rules apply to all entrepreneurs from EU Member States in Austria.
