Applying for a permit for a prostitution business

Description

A prostitution business is operated by someone who commercially offers sexual services by at least one other person or provides premises for this purpose.

Examples of a prostitution trade are

  • Operate a prostitution site (e.B brothel, running house)
  • provide a prostitution vehicle,
  • organize or carry out a prostitution event
  • or operate a prostitution agency (e.B. escort agency).  

The operation of a prostitution business presupposes that the trader or traders derive an economic benefit from the prostitution of another person. A prostitution business does not thus operate who benefits exclusively from his own prostitution activity. These persons are prostitutes and are subject to the obligation to register and to provide health advice.

The permit can be limited in time and provided with ancillary provisions.

You can also have your prostitution business run by one or more vicarious person(s). You also need a separate permit for this.

Please contact the locally responsible district or the locally responsible district-free city in which you want to operate your prostitution business.

Permission is granted for a specific operating concept. You must note that the minimum requirements for the respective prostitution trade must be met. For example, structural conditions are attached to a prostitution site.

In addition, the applicant must:

  • be at least 18 years old, and
  • have the reliability necessary for the operation of a prostitution business.

You have the necessary reliability if

  • you have not been finally convicted within the five years preceding the submission of the application,
  • you have not been deprived of your licence to practise a prostitution business within the last 5 years prior to your application or have been refused the right to engage in a prostitution business, or
  • You have not been a member of a banned association in the last 10 years

Depending on the type of operation, different documents for the permit procedure must be submitted.

Natural persons (individuals) 

  • Identity card, passport, electronic residence permit if applicable 
  • Operating concept
  • Certificate of good conduct for submission to an authority according to document type "0" or European certificate of good conduct,
  • Extract from the Central Trade Register for submission to an authority according to document type "9", 
  •  Certificate in tax matters from the tax office responsible for you,
  • Information on the persons engaged in prostitution activities.

Legal entities (e.B. GmbH) and associations of persons (e.B. OHG, KG)

  • Current excerpt from the commercial register, 
  • copy of the articles of association
  • Operating concept
  • Identity card, passport, possibly electronic residence permit for the legal representatives  , 
  • Certificate of good conduct for submission to an authority according to document type "0" for the legal representatives or European certificate of good conduct,
  • Extract from the Central Trade Register for submission to an authority according to document type "9" for both the company and the legal representatives,
  • Certificate in tax matters of the responsible tax office for the company and the legal representatives ,
  • Information on the persons engaged in prostitution activities.

 

In addition, you need a permit to operate a prostitution site, vehicle or event. You will receive this by means of a separate application.

EUR 100 to 3,000

The permit for the operation of a prostitution business does not replace the business registration according to the trade regulations. This must be done additionally.

In addition, the prostitute also needs a registration. Further information can be found under the keyword "Register prostitution".

The reliability is checked again after 3 years at the latest.

Anyone who wants to operate the prostitution business through a deputy will find information for the necessary permission under the keyword "Prostitution trade deputy appointed".
