Business licenses for companies in the FMCG sector in Gibraltar

In 2015, Gibraltar has amended the Fair Trading Law with the purpose of easing the procedure of obtaining a business license by companies in Gibraltar. The law also affects those who want to open a company in Gibraltar in the FMCG industry, as the new business license includes various classes, one of them being the wholesale and retail of fast-moving consumer goods. The same license is available for FMCG companies importing goods in this category into Gibraltar. The business license for FMCG companies is issued by the Office of Fair Trading in Gibraltar. However, the sale of tobacco products requires a special license.
