Depending on the type business you would like to start, it is sometimes required to obtain a business license in Albania before starting operations. Although most businesses do not require licenses or permits to operate, there are a few regulated industries and professional services in Albania which require a separate license. Some of these are for example private schools, banks, financial institutions, exchange offices, mining operations, telecommunication, medical services, food and beverage production, recruitment services, etc.
A business license is a permit issued by the National Licensing Center or the respective government agency which authorizes you to conduct a specific type of business activity. In most cases, the company has to be registered first before applying for a business license in Albania.
