The methods for registering and obtaining permits for wholesale and retail businesses are very similar to those for manufacturing companies. Traders must pay the registration charge, create a bank account, and get a tax identification number. Aside from that, the trader must supply the authorities with the necessary documentation, which must have all the appropriate information.
The government of Latvia offers a variety of wholesale and retail permits, including a license for biopharmaceutical goods, a special license for starting a drugstore and wholesale dealing in prescription medicines, an authorization for the distribution of health drugs, a special authorization for wholesaling of veterinary medications, a registration for alcoholic products and cigarettes, marketing approval for raw milk, and many others. Below are a few of the Latvian wholesale and retail licenses.
