Business Licenses and Permits in Lithuania
In Lithuania established companies can take some kind of activities and work only with a license or permit. In order to be able to engage certain activity, you may need to proof your additional skills and work place suitability, because unsatisfactory performance of certain activities can create threats to human health and life, personal property, their rights and legitimate interests. Thus, licensing of certain activities aims at ensuring the necessary additional skills possession and avoid threats.
For each licensed activity the Government approve the licensing rules (Civil Code, article 2.78 part 1). Licensing rules specifies licensed activity, the licensing authority and power, required documents for license, the examination of documents and other procedures.
