Sole proprietors

A sole proprietor is an individual doing business with the aim of achieving profit and he/she is registered in accordance with the law.


A sole proprietor may perform all activities stipulated by the law for which he/she meets the requirements, including traditional and art crafts and handicraft.


The minister of economy determines activities that are considered art and traditional crafts, or handicraft, as well as the manner of their certification and the keeping of special records of the certificates issued by the Ministry of Economy.


A natural person performing the activity of free profession, which is regulated by a special regulation, is considered a sole proprietor in line with the Law on companies.
