Some entrepreneurs believe that they can start trading in alcohol wholesaling before the license is obtained. And this is wrong, because alcohol wholesale trading without a license is punishable with a fine of UAH 17,000 and more.

Licensing of the alcohol wholesale trade requires great attention to detail.

We have been working in the field of legal services for over 10 years. During this period, we have gained not only invaluable knowledge, but also practical experience, which helps us to make the solution of any legal issues simple, safe and effective.

Alcohol trading is a promising business sector, but in order to properly organize this business, you need to carefully prepare all documents and undergo each stage of registration.
