Any business which is involved in selling goods or providing services to customers out of a commercial office becomes liable to register. So if you run a business in Maharashtra, you need to look at the the Bombay Shops and Establishments Act, 1948 for registration.The Bombay Shops and Establishments Act requires a shop, commercial establishment, residential hotel, restaurant, eating house, theatre, or other place of public amusement or entertainment to get itself registered.Registration under the Act is mandatory within 30 days of commencement of work, whether or not it has employees.
Whether it’s a shop, commercial establishment, residential hotel, restaurant or even business or services provided through home, registration is compulsory.
A shop and establishment license makes the process of registration under Employee Provident Fund and Employee State Insurance easier.
The validity of the shop and establishment licence is for one year. It has to be renewed after a year’s time period for its continued legal effectiveness.
Broadly speaking the premises governed by the Act are shops, commercial establishments, residential hotels, clubs, restaurants, eating houses, theatres and other places of public amusement or entertainment.
No, unfortunately. There are different laws for different regions in the country. So in addition to the Bombay Shops and Establishments Act, 1948 which we looked at earlier, there is the Delhi Shops and Establishments Act, 1954 and the Karnataka Shops and Establishments Act, 1961 among many, many others.
A registration certificate will be valid up to the end of the year for which it is granted. It should be renewed every year. The application for renewal should be made not less than fifteen days before the date of expiry of the registration certificate.
A place where services are sold on retail basis is also a shop. Therefore an establishment engaged in arranging for musical performance on occasions such as marriages etc., is a shop.
As the establishment of the employer is already registered, he has only to notify to the Inspector about the change that he has started a new business in addition to the original business on the same premises.
An employer is required to notify to the Inspector the closing of his establishment within 10 days of his doing so.
If such a shop or commercial establishment is not connected with the manufacturing process of the factory the provisions of the Act will apply to it. Otherwise the provisions of the Factories Act will apply to it.
