Miscellaneous point to be kept in mind:
Any Businesses engaged in any activities or having labour are required to apply for license based on State govt rule, scale of business and the type of activity. Such businesses must apply for either of the licenses simple registration. The criteria specified in rules are as follows:
Any Change in registration :-
If any change is required in the Registration Certificate issued to you, then the Owner or Employer is required to notify the Chief Inspector..
Time bound :-
The Registration Certificate has to be obtained within 90 days from the date on which the establishment commences its work..
Who can registration :-
Owners of placement agencies supplying domestic servants have should also be registered under the Act.
One can file the application directly with the government:
Do Online Businesses Need It? :-
Online businesses — the ones that are truly online — aren’t shops or establishments, at least not according to the Acts. This is primarily because they were all passed decades ago, before the Internet.
So What Should You Do? :-
So long as you’re an online business, doing work from home, a virtual office or collaborating remotely with your partner, you can claim that you don’t need a Shops & Establishments Registration. After all, the law states that businesses involved in selling goods and services to customers out of commercial offices are liable to register. But you’re selling online online; it would, of course, be different if you were to entertain walk-in clients and sell them products and services. But so long as you don’t, you could technically free yourself from this requirement.
The various acts concern themselves not just with shops and other establishments ‘selling’, but mainly with the employees that work there, their work timings, public holidays and working conditions. Therefore, the moment you hire employees, a Shops & Establishments Registration becomes inescapable, even if you’re only selling online.
Step 4 :-
The government department will take 4-6 working days to completely review your application and approve the same.
