Trades Exhibition Certificates (non-local traders)

Share this page

Trading in Guernsey as a non-resident

Hawkers and Non-Resident Traders (Guernsey) Law 1980, and Trades' Exhibition Certificates.

It is a legal requirement for a Non-Resident Trader, (as defined by the Hawkers and Non-Resident Traders (Guernsey) Law 1980, as amended), to have a Class I or Class II Non Resident Trader licence, issued by the Royal Court before they can trade on the Island.

There are currently 2 classes of licence which can be applied for:

Class I Non-Resident Traders Licence

This licence costs £2000 for a 12 month period and authorises the trader to occupy any premises for the purpose of his/her business.

An application for a Class I licence is made to Guernsey Police and the licence is issued by the Royal Court.

Class II Non-Resident Traders Licence

This license is intended for traders who are attending a trades exhibition. This type of licence costs £50 and is valid for the period of the trades' exhibition. It is only possible to apply for a Class II Licence if the trader possesses a 'trades' exhibition certificate'

Trades' Exhibition Certificates

This certificate is issued by the Committee for Home Affairs, signifying that the Committee has approved the particular event as a Trades Exhibition. A trades' exhibition is not defined in the Law, but will include events such as a craft fair or a farmer's market.

An application for a Class II licence is made to Guernsey Police and the licence is issued by the Royal Court.

Please note, holding a Trades' Exhibition Certificate does not exempt traders from the requirement to have a Non-Resident traders Licence.

For guidance on Trades' Exhibition Certificates please follow this link tradingstandards@gov.gg or call 01481 234567 to contact the Trading Standards Service.
